Waterstones Says

One of children’s fiction’s most accomplished authors returns with a heartwarming story of the most unlikely friendship, as a grounded alien boy strikes up a bond with two schoolchildren.

Who said friends have to match to matter?

When the Star Boy's space-pod crashes in the grounds of Fairfield Academy he knows he must seek shelter. Taking refuge in the school's boiler room to await rescue he discovers that the room's small window is the perfect place to watch humans go by.

The Star Boy knows about humans from his Earth lessons but no one from his planet has ever studied them up close. Now he has the perfect opportunity. There are two humans in particular that catch his attention - a boy called Wes and a girl named Kiki. But as his curiosity grows so does his courage and, making a momentous decision, the Star Boy follows Wes and Kiki into class ... and into their lives.

A warm and otherworldly story about finding friendship in the most unlikely of places, for fans of Tamsin Winter, Cath Howe and Ross Welford.

I really liked this book, it’s reasonably short and very action packed.

All of the characters are well written and the author made me feel like I knew them -very rounded. The illustrations are wonderful!
