Wacky and fun like The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, but for kids!
Ilnoblet Elmer is an ordinary boy. Except for one thing; he’s from another planet – and his family, friends and teachers don’t know.
This human-alien superhero has lots of adventures trying to defeat tricky and sticky aliens, including the Mootilokygogrifies (that’s a mouthful to say – and they’re even worse when hiding in your garden shed).
All between going to school and handing in his homework on time!
The novel is full of science, space travel, planets, extraterrestrials, and some special words and numbers which have an interesting effect on aliens! There’s even a glossary to help with understanding Ilnoblet’s Gapitonian language – you’ll be speaking it in no time!
This book is now part of my ‘Science Fiction Station‘ video learning series! A complete set of cross-curriculum lessons created by the author, for kids aged 9-12. Ideal for homeschooling, the mini lessons include author reading videos and free worksheets with English, Maths, Science and Arts & Crafts activities.
