Best friends Freddy and Sal have accidentally intercepted a message from Alan - a spectacularly grumpy, brain-munching alien from outer space. Alan has only one message.

Soon the police, Nasa and even Presidents from around the world are getting involved - and Freddy is about to become the most famous kid on planet earth for all the wrong reasons. Wolverhampton, we have a problem.

The Day That Aliens (Nearly) Ate Our Brains Reviews

In a hilarious romp that moves fast enough to keep young readers on the edge of their seats, several world presidents, a farting policeman and a very angry lollipop lady join the fight to save Earth and humanity. But who will ultimately succeed? Incidental black-and-white illustrations and plenty of alien-related activities add to the enjoyment of this brilliant first chapters book. * BookTrust *
The humour (the eating of brains, the effects of cheese and onion pasties on the police chief's digestive system) will appeal to many a newly confident reader and Freddy and Sal are engaging characters who try to sort out the invasion they have inadvertently started. * School Zone *
[...] a story packed with jokes to keep young readers entertained. * Sunday Express Magazine *

My son found it absolutely hilarious...definitely a laugh out loud book.
