The first hilarious children’s short chapter book by Sandra Bennett
Gingerbread Aliens

We all know what a Gingerbread Man looks like, but if you were to make a Gingerbread Alien what would it look like?

Simon Bradberrie shapes the head to be more elongated and triangular. Adds sultanas for brains, green jelly eyes and an orange lolly snake all wound up in the middle for intestines!

He and his brothers, David and Brian are cooking for the school fete. David is cooking loaves of bread and Brian is making green slime!

But what if the mixtures get all muddled up?

What could possibly go wrong?

Gingerberead Aliens is the hilarious tale of a series of disastrous domino events that tumble further and further out of control rather than the three brothers facing the consequenses of their initial mistake. The nosy next door neighbour Mrs Witherbottom, spins a whopper of a tale, the school Principal  Mr Penwright, is forced to close the school and the Scientific Research Team for Metorites and Asteroids are called in to investigate. Is it a rock? Is it a football? Is it the charred remains of a spaceship and its strange looking alien inhabitant? All will be revealed with comedy and a whole lot of fun.

Johann Coetzer rated it 5 of 5 stars

This was a really good children’s book, the children loved it, and would really love to buy some more of these books for the children. It was a very refreshing book in comparison of the other children’s books. A definite must buy.

I am really honoured that the Australian National Eisteddfod  selected Gingerbread Aliens for the children to use in their 2013 Championship Section of Speech and Drama Division for Ten years and under. It was a fantastic experience attending the event, listening to students read aloud from my book and presenting awards to the winners.
