Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth

I have always enjoyed Frank Cottrell Boyce's stories - particularly Broccoli Boy and Cosmic - but I didn't feel like this was one of his best, in my opinion. I think I found it quite hard to "connect" with Prez, and initially I was quite confused about why he was the only one that could see Sputnik as an alien rather than as a dog - and I'm still not sure why this was the case (maybe I've missed something...)

However, it's a good and easily accessible read, and I really liked the idea that Laika the dog might have ended up on another planet and reported back on everything that was good about the Earth!
