In January we’ll be publishing the VERY funny Baby Aliens Got My Teacher by Pamela Butchart – a brilliant, laugh-out-loud debut for 7+ year olds, featuring crisp twins, pea phobias, and aliens-in-ears.
And over the Summer, children’s author and app blogger Helen Dineen read an early proof copy of the book with her family – husband Jim, and children Daniel (5) and Hannah (3). Helen said, “I was quite surprised as they are younger than the target age group and I thought they might struggle to get into it with the initial scenes jumping around a bit, but it went down really well.”
And here’s what Daniel has to say about the book:
“It was excellent because I love that they thought she was an alien. The teacher was horrible but she turned all nice. Boys and girls will like it. It reminds me of school. I would like to read more like this. The funny bits were when Zach went in the girls’ toilets and when they thought there was a snake but it was only a sock!”
If you’d like to find out what all the fuss is about, you can read the first chapter of the book here:
It’s also available to pre-order from Waterstones online here.
Thank you to Helen, Jim, Daniel and Hannah for reading the book and sharing their thoughts – we think you’ll all love it too!
