My Friend the Alien: A Bloomsbury Reader Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Sernur Isik

Part of the Bloomsbury Readers series



A thought-provoking comedy about being an alien from prize-winning Zanib Mian. Maxx is an alien: a real one - from the planet Zerg.

He's on Earth to research these strange things called emotions that humans have (and eat as much chocolate as he can).

But some of the humans seem to think Maxx's new human friend Jibreel is an alien too, and Maxx just can't figure it out.

Why would coming from another country make you an alien?!This funny science-fiction story is a perfect way to tackle difficult topics like racism and refugees with children.

It has hilarious black-and-white illustrations from Sernur Isik throughout, and is ideal for children who are developing as readers. The Bloomsbury Readers series is packed with brilliant books to get children reading independently in Key Stage 2, with book-banded stories by award-winning authors like double Carnegie Medal winner Geraldine McCaughrean and Waterstones Prize winner Patrice Lawrence, covering a wide range of genres and topics.

With charming illustrations and online guided reading notes written by the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE), this series is ideal for reading both in the classroom and at home.
