A Monster Ate My Packed Lunch is out today!

Today we’re very excited to have published A Monster Ate My Packed Lunch – a laugh-out-loud new instalment in the bestselling Baby Aliens series, from Blue Peter Award winners, Pamela Butchart and Thomas Flintham.

This hilarious, illustrated series for readers aged 7+ follows Izzy and her school friends on various dramatic adventures, from yetis and lollipop men to demon dinner ladies. In this new book, Izzy and her friends suspect there is a monster lurking in the lake…

Izzy and her friends are on a school trip to a big lake. Gary Petrie is excited because the lodges where they’re staying have ROBES AND SLIPPERS! The lake is dark and deep and a bit scary. But it’s when they open their packed lunches that they know! There’s a MONSTER in the lake and it’s coming for their CRISPS!
