“Gingerbread Aliens is about three brothers that make a bet on who can raise the most money at the school fete. So they all go and make their own things to sell. But who will win the bet? And what will happen to the loser? (ha ha) Gingerbread Aliens is a funny and exciting book. I loved the slime, goo and silly putty not to mention what happens to Mrs Witherbottom's backside. You can never tell what's going to happen next with its unpredictable ending. I would love to read another book from Sandra Bennett,” Dane, aged 8.
