Dad's new book has just arrived and the children are sitting down to read his latest adventure...Blasting off into space, Dad's on the hunt for aliens. He meets lots of them - cute, hairy, bug-eyed and scary - and, strangest of all, he falls in love. Dad brings his alien girl back to Earth, where they have a family and live happily ever after. When Dad's book is finished, the family are amused...because it's an extra-terrestrial, extra-true story - all about them!
