This review is from: Eeek! (Paperback)
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.
