They Came from Planet Zabalooloo!

By Sean Taylor
Illustrated by Kate Hindley

We are friends on epic adventure to Planet Earth! We got space ship! YEAHHH! Look – it's got steering wheel, space biscuits and party area. OOH LA LA!

From the author of Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise and the team behind Don’t Call Me Choochie Pooh! comes a wildly inventive, contemporary picture book comedy about aliens. Boron, Bazoo and Zob are three extra-terrestrials on a mission. They’re going to take something brilliant from Earth and bring it back to their home planet, Zabalooloo. Something like … an enormous elephant! But this goofy, giddy trio are simply too overexcited – they’re never going to catch anything if they keep wiggle-woggle dancing, taking selfies and shouting, “Ooh la la!”.

  • Perfectly captures the giddiness and giggly overexcitement that comes with any new adventure
  • The narrative voice is hilarious and Kate’s artwork is amazing – lush, atmospheric and irresistible … unlike anything you’ve seen from her before!
  • With its photo finale, this book is very on-trend – perfect for the "selfie" generation of readers!
