Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth

Prez is a boy who needs answers but appears to have lost the ability to speak. Then into his life arrives Sputnik, an alien, who informs him that in order to save the planet he must make a list of ten things worth seeing or doing on earth. What follows is an adventure without limits where anything and everything happens. Amongst the mayhem, Prez builds relationships with new friends. The story finally concludes with him finding the answer he’s been looking for and the realisation that a purposeful existence is built on memories as well as an optimism for the future. Totally unbelievable situations laced with highly believable characters. Frank Cottrell Boyce, a sensitive storyteller with an imagination that knows no limits!
