The heart-warming story of a little boy who misses his mum from award-winning author-illustrator Simon James.
The day that Stanley's mum had to go away to, he decided to go to Mars. In his place, a not-very-well-behaved Martian arrived. He looked just like Stanley, but he wouldn't eat his vegetables, he wouldn't clean his teeth and he certainly didn't play nicely in the playground. Dad's not sure what Mum will think when she gets back. Will the martian still be there, or will the real Stanley get back in time?
"Simon James never fails to delight and this book is a cracker. The matter of fact, down-to-earth telling is pitch perfect when read aloud - the dialogue is simply superb. The illustrations reveal a space-obsessed little human with an inventive imagination and much else to contemplate and revel in." * Red Reading Hub * "Reassuring and thoughtful, it's excellent for families where one parent has to work away from home." * Parents in Touch *
