DON'T buy this if you think it's a new one - it's a renamed version of 'Come to Tea on Planet Zum Zee' which my Granddaughter loves. It being published Feb 11, you would expect a new story - perhaps to do with the 'monster' character on the front cover of the 'new' one. Was a HUGE dissapointment when excited 3yr old granddaughter was looking forward to a new bedtime story only to discover some slight alterations to the pictures and the same story. So if you've already got 'Come to tea on Planet Zum Zee'don't buy it, if you haven't, then it is actually a nice story - just means I shall be wary of books from this author now, which is a shame, as if this becomes a habit (changing covers & titles) then how will we know it's really new?

1.0 out of 5 stars A re-titled existing book! 5 Feb 2011
By Sadie
I was very disappointed to receive this book and find it to be exactly the same book as "Come to tea on planet Zum Zee" just re-dressed in line with the "Aliens love....." range. I was hoping it was a sequel to the original book, I feel that I have been mislead and think that maybe others will too.

I bought this for a space topic in school and the kids loved the pictures and rhyming and aliens. It encouraged them to create their own pictures and stories - well done.

Personally I hated it - but the kids loved the bright colours and the silliness of the book so would still read it.

Brilliant book for any youngster. Good storyline with a hidden depth of meaning - or just read it for what it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely book .
My son borrowed this book from the library and loved it so much that he pestered me into getting it for him. He still loves reading it and it has been some time since I bought it.
