Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth

Prez is a child in care because his only close relative, his grandfather, is suffering from dementia. When Prez is fostered out for the summer to the Blythes, a rowdy farming family, he is joined by Sputnik, an alien who appears to him as a boy but to everyone else as a dog.

This book is heart-breaking and hilarious in equal measure. Prez's uncertainty of his place in the world makes him hugely endearing, and Sputnik, the unpredictable and spontaneous alien, is a fantastic character, filling the pages with joy and adventure.
