The Wrong Side of the Galaxy

Book 1

By Jamie Thomson

  • Paperback
  • £6.99

Harry wished he was a million miles away, but this is getting ridiculous...

Abducted by aliens, Harry wakes up on his birthday marooned on a spaceship. His only companions: two freaky princess clones, a weird alien-fish-kangaroo hybrid with delusions of grandeur and a ship's computer with a serious attitude problem. It's the worst birthday ever.

How is he ever going to get back to Earth now?

A brilliantly silly new story from the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize
