Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth- Book Review
By Frank Cottrell Boyce

This book includes various creative ideas which intrigue the reader to keep on reading. It really engaged me as I also found myself incapable of putting the book down.

Genre: Mystery and Adventure

Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth is about a boisterous family named the Blythes. They sometimes take in foster kids. One day, Prez, a silent but cheerful boy, comes to live with them. He one day opens the door to a man who claims to be a relative. The man was a small yet loud person who went by the name of Sputnik. Sputnik casually rolls past him and introduces himself to everyone. But the family start to pet him and comfort him. Prez soon realises that only he sees the real form of Sputnik whereas the family see him as a dog! Sputnik had supposedly come from space to stop the Earth from becoming the size of a golfball and he needed Prez's help to stop it. Prez begins to work with Sputnik to figure out 10 reasons why the Earth should be saved.

I feel that this book really engaged me. It included wacky and weird stories which really had me fascinated. It contained a touching plot and was at times quite humorous. Out of five, I would give this book a 4.5.

The intended audience seems to be around 15 or under. I believe this as the story simply proves itself as a children's, fictional novel. This book is fit for both genders aged 8 plus.
