Badly behaving book creates buzz about the endless possibilities of reading and is sure to get youngsters excited.
It’s Noah’s day for Show and Tell and he’s got the perfect book to share. Just one problem…the characters have all escaped. There’s an alien in the lunchbox, a witch in the PE bag, a goblin at the desk, a ghost in the toilet and a dragon in the playground. With story-time looming and the characters misbehaving, Noah needs a plan. Can he get everyone back where they belong? Will Noah's book behave for long enough for him to share the story...
Books are wonderful; a gateway to other worlds, to impossible adventures and, in Noah’s case, mischief and mayhem. Colourful chaos reigns in this delightful school-based story that weaves the everyday with the supernatural as characters, that should be strictly confined to the world of imagination, hop off of the pages for some brief moments of interaction with the real world.
Delivered in sprightly rhyming prose - begging to be read aloud - and exploding with energetic, vibrant artwork, There’s an Alien in My Lunch Box is a fantastically fun celebration of books and all the riches that they can bring into young lives. Sure to be a hit with children in early years settings who will easily relate to Noah’s world and will understand the many problems that his characters are causing. The hijinks from ghost, witch, alien et al will be met with howls of laughter and voices wishing all manner of characters from stories into reality are sure to follow.
Brilliant for igniting that spark for reading and instilling a lifelong love of books!
