An Alien Stole My Planet is a laugh-out-loud, wacky adventure through space by Pooja Puri, brilliantly illustrated by Allen Fatimaharan. It is the third book in the A Dinosaur Ate My Sister series.

Before you start reading, there are a few things you should know:

1. I, Esha Verma, am a genius inventor extraordinaire.
2. I like lists.
3. I did not mean to open up an inter-galactic portal. Some things just can't be helped.

Esha Verma, her snotty apprentice Broccoli and his secretly cunning pet tortoise are on their third adventure – this time it's an inter-galactic mission through outer-space to stop an alien from stealing their planet!

When Esha invents the Inviz-Whiz, a device designed to make the user invisible, she does not expect it to open a portal to outer space – and things go from bad to worse when Esha, Broccoli, Archibald and Broccoli's annoying cousin Bean are immediately abducted by Goospa, an alien with an evil plan!

With the help of a surly alien called Nix, Esha and the gang must race across the galaxy, navigate a Lava Marsh, fight vicious Ice Bats – and stop Bean getting into too much trouble! – to stop Goospa's plan before it's too late!

The all-action, laugh-out-loud third book in the A Dinosaur Ate My Sister series. Puri and Fatimaharan work their special magic on this madcap adventure . . . a hilarious chapter of accidents that no mischief-maker would want to miss!
The perfect story to escape into and find adventure. Pooja is super talented and I'm a big fan!
A joyfully bonkers adventure, brimming with humour and heart.
