About this deal

She spends her days reading comics about alien invasions, doodling UFOs and gazing at the stars through her old, battered telescope.

bestselling author David Walliams for a breathless cinematic adventure full of mystery, action, laughs and surprises – and a secret that could change the course of history. He also jabs a punch of humour on the state of society, government and politics which makes you double over with laughter. The night sky is the only pleasure Ruth gets since she was left as an orphan on her evil aunt's steps.David’s books have now exceeded 100 non-consecutive weeks at children’s number one, and have been translated into 53 languages, selling more than 35 million copies worldwide.

I also loved all the illustrations because they helped bring the story to life, especially the ones at the end. I was glad to see the historical context of the book, a bit of history there for readers, and Walliams actually reins in some of the usual silliness with no Raj or disgusting lunch menus. As much as they try to escape (riding ostriches, rolling in giant transparent balls, running in the desert, or sliding in craters), Ruth, Spaceboy, and Yuri end up in a top-secret US military base, caught by the faceless figures who happen to be soldiers in special costumes. Pretty much every page was just a load of silly speech full of puns and jokes, and there was barely anything serious.We also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners. I loved that even though this story was different from David Walliams’ other novels; both in place and time, it didn’t lose any of its Walliams’ magic.
