"Another great book from Karen Inglis. 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." -- Louse Jordan, The Writers' Advice Centre for Children's Books, Director, Wacky Bee Books

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!
I've read it over her shoulder and found it a really appealing, lively story that is bound to appeal to even the most reluctant reader. Charlie, the main character is a very endearing hero and Eeek has to be the most lovable alien since ET!
I'll be recommending this to my nephews too - I think it might be just the thing to get them away from their football annuals.
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!
