A boy, an alien and football - a match made in heaven for soccer fans aged 7-10! Laugh-out-loud funny!Eleven-year-old Charlie Spruit can't believe his luck when he opens his door to an alien one morning. Who is he? Why has he come? Charlie soon discovers that this alien has run away from space to Earth to be with him because he's soccer mad and the World Cup is on...! 'Eeek, ' as Charlie decides to call him, takes up secret residence in Charlie's bedroom where he sleeps on the ceiling by night and pores over Charlie's football magazines and stickers by day. All is going surprisingly well until slimy sci-fi mad Sid Spiker, who lives out the back, spots Eeek through his telescope. Sid has his own plans for this alien, which bring surprises that no-one could have imagined...

Definitely immersive. I really enjoyed this story of an alien visiting the earth, who happens to be a huge football fan. As I was reading this book, I could count a number of boys in my class who would love to read this book- aliens and football, what a perfect combination.
In my opinion, girls and boys (for sure) of age 7-10 would love this book. There are illustrations within the book to help those who need them. Lovely, lovely book. The ending it brilliant too- somewhat unpredictable.

Charlie finds an alien, his brother tries to expose him! Eeeek is the alien who is really funny and at the end of the book you find out why he is here on earth. 
There are pictures in the book but the characters are described really well that you can picture them yourselves.
My favourite part of the book involves an alien and a football pitch!!!

Great book with a few interesting twists which my little girl found amazing. This book is very discriptive and well thought out probably ideal for an 8 year old. 
The football loving Alien was adorable with its blue smoke coming out of its ears. 

A good quick read, I would recommend this book

Having previously, enjoyed ‘The Secret Lake’ I was really looking forward to reading this new book, and I was not disappointed! This is such a fun read which had me laughing out loud in places!  I think this is a great book. With it’s alien and football themes I think it will capture the imagination of lots of children, and will be enjoyed by both boys and girls. This book is ideally suited to reluctant boy readers. I thoroughly recommend it!

My son was lucky enough to win this book in a competition and what a fantastic prize it was. He's 5 and loved the story from start to finish. The descriptions of the characters in the book are fab and we laughed out loudly several times whilst reading this. My youngest boy aged 3 also listened whilst I read the book and both boys were captivated.
