Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth

Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth is a very funny book where an alien comes to Earth and everyone but Prez (the main character) thinks he's a dog. Sputnik doesn't know about life on Earth and so he does some crazy (and illegal) things. He has come to Earth to try and find 10 amazing things on Earth which are reasons why it should not be destroyed. He does not choose the Taj Mahal but instead chooses high-vis jackets! He has come to Earth because he met Laika in space who talked about the Earth and how great it was and so he decided to come as a dog. It's a comedy book which also creates a tense feeling. Will they save the world?... It also has a touching side when Prez and Sputnik try and find Prez's grandad who was taken away from him and Prez had to go to the Temporary. I would recommend it for someone who liked other of Frank Cottrell Boyce's books and for someone who wants a laugh.
