Space Alien at Planet Dad by Lucinda Gifford
Published by Scholastic Australia
Every Saturday Jake would visit his dad, Planet Dad he called it. Jake & his dad enjoyed all things about space. One Saturday Jake found Planet Dad had been invaded by a space alien who then stayed for dinner, slept over & remained all the next day. Planet Dad did not seem to mind but Jake tried all his Space Alien ridding techniques only to find the Space Alien did not go. As a last resort he blasted the space alien into a black hole. The next Saturday, Planet Dad had a fantastic plan - to visit a 3D Space Museum. Jake liked the idea only to find out the Space Alien had followed them. While there Jake began to realise the Space Alien knew loads of cool space information. It even knew how to give a girl who pushed ahead of him in the queue a Retina Blasting Plasma Gaze. Jake began to like having the Space Alien around. The next Saturday when he visited Planet Dad he even took something awesome to share with the Space Alien.
I particularly like the part where Jake blasted the Space Alien into a black hole.
I can see boys being particularly interested in & enjoying reading this book.
