Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth

The deeply unhappy Prez is taken in by a foster family, the Blythe's, for the summer. One day Sputnik, an alien in a kilt knocks at the door...strangely everyone else apart from Prez sees a dog! Sputnik and the lonely Prez become friends and the alien shares the secret that Earth will be shrunk because it's a planet that has become boring.

The two friends work together to create a guide book called "Ten Things Worth Doing on Earth" inspired by the sad story of Laika - the Russian dog who became the first living creature to orbit the Earth. They hope that it will save Earth from destruction. Can they do it and will it be a happy ending for both Prez and Sputnik?

This book is well written and funny in places; however it's not one of my favourites on the list and it wasn't a page turner for me!
