The Stranger from Another Planet by Ivan Gantschev
... both my young sister and I fell in love with Ivan Gantschev's illustrations. In fact, I am, now looking for any other works from this genius. Trust me, this wonderful collection will keep your child, or you, spellbound for hours.

This is only the second Banks novel I have read, but I have to say that this is the best book I have read by a British author since Trainspotting. On the recommendation of my English teacher, Mrs McGee, I decided to give the book a chance, after enjoying The Wasp factory so much. The life of Prentice is easy to identify with, and when he is at his lowest, the reader is also. Everybody should read this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Same rules apply!, 11 Aug 2001
Welsh manages to create a vile, despicable character with less scruples than our good friend Begbie. Yet again the Scotsman comes up trumps, with a hard hitting (as it would be on television) look at the 'filth' who are meant to be keeping the streets clear of crime. I'm sure that there are many 'polis' who can identify. and probably empathise, with Robertson. A backside scratching, coke sniffing, rascist with a taste for 'turning the lights out', definitely one of Welsh's great characters!
