5.0 out of 5 stars We Fell Off The Chair Laughing 22 Oct 2002
Format:Paperback
A great book with funny illustrations on every page, which give you plenty to talk about. The punch line of the story is the fact that a photograph of your childs class is the very thing which frightened the horrible aliens away, giving a good opportunity for irrereverend hilarity. The story is written in rhyme and flows beautifully, but we really did fall of our chair laughing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring Engaging and Fun 27 May 2009
Format:Paperback
I used this book with Year 1 children, they soon began to join in!! The children talked about the story all day and many activities span from this. The illustrations are fantastic and the children enjoyed making their own Alien paintings and describing them. A must for every child.

This brilliant book is sure to grab the attention of each child/parent/teacher that reads it. It is particularly good for children who need help with onset and rime during early phonics education. You can't help being amazed at the drawings and the alien's funny antics described so well by McNaughton.

5.0 out of 5 stars A SUPER BOOK FOR ALL THE FAMILY 5* 6 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback
Another Fantastic book by Colin Mcnaughton, a cleverly illustrated colourful book in simple rhyming verse suitable for boys or girls of all ages, just the right length not too long or short. Children will love all the fun brightly coloured alien characters. An ideal first read that children will will want to read over and over. Entertaining read for adults too, Little ones will want to join in when they hear "The Aliens are coming!" My children voted this a top read 5 out of 5! And can't wait to get more Colin McNaughton books.We're Off to Look for Aliens

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book you'll be asked to read a 1000 times! 15 Jan 2008
Format:Paperback
Kids up to 8 will love this book and will read it over and over. It's very funny! This book was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal. McNaughton goes to town inventing weird-looking aliens with ever more disgusting habbits. "They come from planets near and far - Some big, some small, some quite bizarre. Twinkle, Twinkle little star - the aliens are coming!"

An hysterical story with funny rhymes, fantastic illustrations and a chance to wow your children with your alien voices. Gory but not frightening, this will be an immediate hit but be prepared to read it over and over and over again, and to answer some rather unanswerable questions! A perfect 4th birthday present.

I purchased this book for my class. They love it and have had great fun thinking about aliens and creating their own aliens.

It has a good pattern and easy to follow rhyme.

Would recommend.
