"Welford is a remarkably entertaining storyteller. "

For Ethan and his eccentric friend Iggy this is the beginning of a strange adventure close to home and a rescue bid very far away, which, despite the apparently desperate situation, manages to be funny. The alien is smelly but thinks it is humans who are, Iggy is both annoying and marvellous, and Ethan’s voyage of discovery is original, amusing and gripping.
