Space Oddity
by Christopher Edge

Jake is embarrassed by his dad who keeps showing him up in front of his friends. It happens at school and when they go on a trip together in the forest, it continues there too.

But when Jake's dad disappears, Jake realises just how much he loves him. 

What's more, his dad can't help it! He's not from round here. That is, planet earth.

Jake's dad is an alien, and Jake is determined to rescue him from the UFO which has taken him. But how will he do it?

Serious messages are explored - life forms in the universe, artificial intelligence, the love between father and son - in a slapstick, action-packed adventure which will appeal to all age groups. Silly and great fun!
