The Pet Defenders Code: 1. The safety of Planet Earth depends on you. 2. Humans MUST NOT know the truth. GOOD LUCK - you'll need it...

From Gareth P. Jones, winner of the Blue Peter Award and author of successful young series fiction, including NINA MEERKATS, comes a brand-new comic caper. THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS meets THE X FILES - Pet Defenders are secret agents with a difference.

It's up to Mitzy and Biskit to save the world from alien invasions - just so long as they can stop fighting like cat and dog for long enough to do it!

Secret agent Biskit is not happy when he discovers his new partner Mitzy is a cat - everyone knows that cats and dogs don't mix. But saving the earth from alien invasions must come first and the planet is under attack! A cluster of cow pats has flown into town and they're whipping up a stink... It's time for Biskit and Mitzy to put aside their differences and kick some alien butt!

For fans of funny and action-packed animal adventures including Andrew Cope's Spy Dog series, Astrosaurs and Jeremy Strong.

A hilarious tale of a mismatched pair of super agents - a cat and a dog calle Mitzy and Bizkit - they have to join forces to save the universe from an invasion of stinky cow pats that threaten the universe with their pong! My children loved the characters - and loved that they were domestic pets like cat and dog - it makes them funny and easy to relate to - we loved the bit with the cow poo pats flying in to town and Bizkit and Mitzy deciding to be friends and fight against them instead of like cat and dog! lovely book perfect for all ages!

From the cover this did not look like the sort of book I was going to like that much, but when I read the blurb and it sounded interesting so I decided to enter the give away.

Attack of the Alien Dung is much more exciting than you would expect and it has lots of funny moments. The main characters are a dog called Biskit, who is actually a secret agent who saves the world from aliens; Mizy, is a cat who likes to plan ahead and is quick on her feet and Example One, who is a super clever mouse with bright pink furr.

On a finally note Attack of the Alien Dung is a fun exciting book with laughter at every turn.

Funny, witty and easy enough text for a 6 year old to read with the occasional help from a parent. Both our boys found the story intriguing and the illustrations caused proper belly laughs. Overall a great book and it only took us few nights to read from cover to cover. Definitely recommend.

I read this to my two boys over a few nights - the chapters are a good length for a bedtime story. The 8 year old declared it to be 'brilliant' and the 4 year old loved the inclusion of illustrations throughout the book. The book also has a great cover to draw in younger readers. There are several laugh out loud moments, the boys particularly liked the seagulls and their 'Forget-Me-Plop'! The four year old in particular loved the idea that the animals around us are actually secret agents! Highly recommended as a story to read aloud to children or for young confident readers to read themselves. We're looking forward to the next instalment.

Great idea for a book. Entertaining and funny. Chapters are just the right length. I read this book to Ethan (6) and he enjoyed it. He found the "Forget me Plops" very funny.

This was OK but took us both a while to get into it. The use of language didn't somehow suit my 6 year old - he found it hard to follow in places. It felt like it would work better as a TV cartoon than a book - weird thing to say, I know, but the story just didn't flow for us.
