About the Book
Meet the three cheeky Bradberrie brothers, Brian the curious scientist, Simon the youngest and most mischievous and David who is always nervous about all the trouble they inevitably get into. Then there's Mrs Witherbottom, the nosy neighbour with the biggest bottom in the world and a whopper of a tale to match. Havoc in the kitchen spells disaster in the school grounds as Principal Penwright closes the school. 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 humour and a whole lot of fun.
Sandra wrote Gingerbread Aliens during her own three sons informative years while also teaching Primary school children. She has a passion for encouraging all children to want to learn to read and love books. It is her belief that in a world where children get lost in computer games from such an early age, it is important to bring them back to basics where the fundamentals of learning to read are the building blocks of all further education. During her years in the classroom, Sandra found the key to her students wanting to learn to read was by writing stories that related to those children which in turn engaged them and helped them learn. She has many wonderful memories of kindergarten students lying on the floor of the classroom desperately trying to read over and over again the latest adventure she wrote for them and about them. Children everywhere will relate to the boys in Gingerbread Aliens. Everyone goes to school, has a nosy neighbour and tries cooking (with disastrous results) in their kitchen.
