More About the Author

Hi! I'm Karen Inglis. I live in London in the UK.

I've been writing ever since I was little and still have a box of my daily diaries hidden in a cupboard somewhere!

I'm a big dreamer and thinker, which is how my time travel mystery adventure, The Secret Lake, came about... It's about Tom and Stella who find a tunnel and secret lake that take them to their home and the children living there 100 years in the past. I hope that you'll enjoy and share this very special story with family and friends who have children aged 8-11. It's now been enjoyed by around 6,000 children in print or Kindle:)

My graphic novel, 'Eeek!' is about an alien who loves football so runs away to Earth during the World Cup! It's filled with fun black and white illustrations - even the Kindle version. Don't miss out if you are a boy or girl aged 7-10 who loves soccer and humour. And be ready for a surprise!

'Ferdinand Fox's Big Sleep' is a rhyming colour picture book for 3-6 yr-olds about a fox that once fell asleep in my garden. There's also a colouring book version. I hope the younger ones will enjoy it - and I know that the grown-ups will love the rhyme!

Finally,'Henry Haynes and the Great Escape' is a fun chapter book for age 6-8 about a boy who gets sucked down into his library book story after complaining that it's boring. It's a firm favourite at school visits :-)

Best wishes,

Karen

This book was recommended to me as ideal for engaging reluctant readers. As I work for a charity that encourages children to read for pleasure, I was interested to test it out.

I may not be the target audience (the grown-up mother of a girl, and neither of us like football) but this book charmed me from the first page.

It is written from the point of view of a sporty boy in the early stages of secondary school who finds a football-mad alien in his bedroom. As the boy tries to pass off the smoke-blowing green alien as his visiting actor cousin in fancy dress, his wry observations about both the alien and members of his family made me laugh aloud. It's the type of story that would have bedtime readers pleading for ten minutes more or reading beneath their blankets with a torch, until they reach what is its very satisfying conclusion.

With short chapters, ending on cliffhangers, and interspersed with just enough amusing illlustrations to sugar the pill of chapter books for easily daunted readers, this is just the (football) ticket to get boys reading. I'm sure girls would enjoy it too. This one certainly did! Great stuff!

This is such a fun read which had me laughing out loud in places!

What happens when a fluorescent green, smoke wafting, football mad alien turns up on your doorstep? Well, for the 11 year old Charlie in this story it is the beginning of an unusual friendship, involving a catalogue of amusing incidents and antics. The alien takes up residence in Charlie's bedroom, sleeping on the ceiling at night and studying football in the day time. As the adventure unfolds a sci-fi obsessed neighbour sees the alien through his telescope and ....... You'll have to read the book for yourself to find out!!

I think this is a great book. With it's alien and football themes I think it will capture the imagination of lots of children, and will be enjoyed by both boys and girls. I thoroughly recommend it!

This is a wonderful story about 11 year old Charlie who finds an alien on his doorstep one day and decides to help it and keep it secretly in his bedroom. He names his alien Eeek because of the noise it makes.

Charlie discovers that the alien is a massive football fan and spends all it's time watching football on the telly or going to football matches, it's biggest dream is to watch the World Cup.

Sci-Fi fanatic and next door neighbour, Sid, finds out that Charlie has a real live alien and tries to capture it so he can sell his story to Sci-Fi Weekly. What happens next is a brilliant adventure and Charlie is definitely the hero of the story.

A great bedtime read, my 6 & 8 year old sons really enjoyed this book, often encouraging me to read more than just one chapter at bedtime - a sure sign of a page-turner!

We can't recommend the book highly enough and James is already looking for more titles by Karen, having now read Eeek! and The Secret Lake.

Once discovered on Lovereading4kids reading the extract, I ordered 3 copies. 75 children have now had the pleasure of meeting Eeek! and they enjoyed the book as much as I had hoped. I used it for the Dialogue and Plays Year3 literacy unit so we added new adventures as a play.
A perfect book for reluctant readers and football mad boys and girls. I'm currently reading The Secret Lake by the same author, another fantastic read!

Eeek the alien really comes to life with wonderful descriptions.

There are some great surprises I can't tell.

It took me half the book to realize football means soccer!

The story was exciting. Eeek was amazing and Charlie was great. The description of the space craft amazing.

I had a very fun time reading Eeek!

Thank you,

Declan

How amazing! Eleven-year-old Charlie Spruit opens his door - and there's an alien. An alien who has run away from space because he's a soccer fan and the World Cup is on. Charlie decides to call him 'Eeek,' and Eek takes up secret residence in Charlie's bedroom. He sleeps by night and learns about football by day. But their harmonious co-existence is threatened by space-mad Sid from next door. An unusual friendship leads to some very amusing situations. A truly imaginative story that will make an excellent class reader as it will appeal equally to boys and girls.

Another great book from Karen Inglis for the 7/8 plus market. Like her previous novel 'The Secret Lake', Karen has kept 'Eeek!' to a manageable length. Too many books for this age group are so long that they tend to put off the less confident reader. It helps, as well, that it is illustrated which makes the text look both fun and manageable. I have had a great response to this book since featuring it on my own website [...]
