Book is out of this world; Time Off The family entertainment guide.

Alien Schoolboy's Z - A Guide to Earthlings - Translated from Alien by Ros Asquith, PS6.99 (Piccadilly). "DEAR Faathings, Human ways are totally illogical and baffling. Having spend some time among Earthlings, I have compiled this new guide to their planet. I hope it will help you avoid making some of the unfortunate mistakes I did! Happy readin! Flowkwee (aka the Alien Schoolboy).

And so, in a nutshell, begins this hilarious look at human life, as seen through the eyeballs of an alien.

The guide is filled with diverting entries like: Jumper - very disappointing clothe which hardly moves at all, let alone jumper!

Chocolate - Flowkwee loves sweets and chocolates, especially the lovely crunchy wrappers.

It's inventive, funny and clever and entertains on all sorts of levels, yet buried within the sheer daft exhuberance are astute observations on human life in all its irrationality.

And dotted between Flowkwee's words of wisdom are some fabulous and witty illustrations which will drive you 'bootglarked' with laughter.
