Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth

In my opinion, this book is unbelievably boring. This is not because it is a terrible book but the fact that I am too old to be reading a book with this level of immaturity. I think I would enjoy it far more if I was seven or maybe even younger however I should review it so here we are.
This book is about a boy, Prez, who struggles with social skills when he is not in the company of his Grandad. His Grandad seems to have lost his marbles so he has been taken away however Prez does not know where to. Prez is in temporary but a family who live on a farm takes Prez in for the summer. Life is average for him until the doorbell rings; no one hears it but Prez. When he opens the door, to his surprise he sees an alien. Sputnik introduces himself to the whole family but only Prez understands. After working out that everyone else thinks sputnik is a dog and Prez can talk to him with his mind, they, him and Sputnik, go on many mischievous adventures in the hope that they can save the Earth from being shrunk. (Sputnik tells him that it is going to happen) To do this they must make a list of 10 things worth experiencing in Earth. Can they do it?
As I have already mentioned, I don’t particularly like this book however I do have to praise it for its creativity and originality. I would recommend it to a seven year old. For my age group, I rate it 4/10. For an appropriate audience I would predict a 7 or 8 out of 10.
