Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth

Sputniks is a children's book about the friendship of a boy and his space alien dog. I have one problem with this book. It is far too similar to HitchHikers. The story line is way too similar to the book, with an alien befriending a human and telling them about the impending doom of the earth, and about a book that needs to be corrected for earth, a guide. Although it is a good book, the author's ideas are clearly those of Douglas Adams. He has not made an effort to change them really, and this ruins the book for me. If you wish to read this book, I also recommend reading the HitchHickers Series too!
