Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth

Sputnik’s Guide to Life on Earth is an exciting book about a young boy called Prez and his friend from the universe, Sputnik. Everyone sees Sputnik as a dog, apart from Prez who sees him as a boy. It is set over his summer away from temporary care. Sputnik comes to visit and says that they have the summer to make a list of 10 of the most amazing things in world to save planet Earth! I loved this book and found it a very fun book to read. I think that it is nice that the story is based around his grandpa with forgetting problems and his time in care.

I think the advents were very funny and it was a nice way to relax. I found this book highly amusing how a dog manages to mess with space. Sputnik keeps on saying, whenever they think something is impossible, "Read the manual!"

The book doesn't have a lot of description in some places, just a lot of lists. This is more affective then using similes because the throughout the book they are making lists. I think that the fact they talked through their minds and dog barking was cool and the fact they can get away with nearly anything is amazing! I think that Frank Cottrell Boyce is a great author who always writes books which aren't necessarily emotional or full of adventure, but seem just as exciting and fun to read.

I give this book 8.5/10 stars because it was a great however it ended too quickly. I hope that you enjoy reading this book if you decide to!
