Wouldn’t you love to have your very own little alien friend? Well, that’s exactly what Caitlin gets in Perijee & Me by Ross Montgomery.
Caitlin doesn’t have any friends, and she hates living out in the middle of nowhere on a remote island with a Mum who ignores her and a Dad who’s never there. And then she meets Perijee…
Perijee makes life fun. He tries to eat books, punches a hole in the guestroom door, and he even moulds himself into the shape of a human but gets his mouth in the wrong place. Things become tricky when it turns out Caitlin’s little alien friend doesn’t stay little – he just keeps growing! When Perijee eventually gets discovered by the rest of the world, he’s taken away from her and grows into a terrifying monster! Caitlin’s the only one who knows he’s good, so she must travel across the country to save him.
Can Caitlin get Perijee back home, wherever his home is, and can she make any human friends?
Perijee & Me is both wonderfully funny AND a strange fantastical adventure.
