Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth - Frank Cottrell Boyce

Staff Pick

Prez, a young boy living in foster care, is enjoying the relative normalcy of life on a family farm when he receives a not-so-normal visitor. Sputnik is an extraterrestrial who appears as a dog to everyone else, and he tells Prez that the Earth will be destroyed unless the two of them can come up with a list of ten reasons why it should be saved. Thus begins the madcap romp to compile Sputnik’s Guide to Life on Earth (Walden Pond, $16.99). Both humorous and heartfelt, Frank Cottrell Boyce masterfully channels his inner Douglas Adams to create a fun, quirky adventure that also serves as a witty commentary on human relationships and behavior. Ages 9-12. Marc Villa
