A close up of a book shelf

Your Alien by Tammi Sauer {Book Review}

October 25, 2015

You will be looking out your window when something wonderful comes your way.

You will want to keep him.

You and your alien will strike up a fabulous friendship and all will go well… until bedtime. 
Can you figure out what your new buddy needs most of all?
This funny, heart-warming story proves that friends and family are the most important things in the universe… no matter who you are.

A book sitting on top of a bookshelf

Follow the story of a little boy who discovers an alien and wants to keep him. Join them as they attend school together, go exploring and eat tea. There is however something wrong with the alien he doesn’t seem happy and no matter what the boy does he can’t make him smile.

Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…

Tigger really enjoyed this story, they have been learning about space at school so the idea of a story about an alien really appealed to him. Following their adventures at school tickled Tigger especially when the story says that the teacher though she needed new glasses.

A story that takes you on a journey and shows you that no matter what fun and adventures you have sometimes you just need a hug from your family.

Price and availability

Your Alien is available in hardback priced at Β£9.99 and is available from Amazon and all other good book retailers.
