A new book from the author of The ListPraise for Bumpfizzle:

"So hilarious! Patricia Forde is definitely the high queen of Irish comedy." — Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl 

"Forde’s inventive wordsmithing and her instinct for the ridiculous will have kids in stitches." – The New York Times

Bumpfizzle is an alien sent to Earth on a mysterious mission from Planet Plonk. Or is he a ten-year-old boy who is jealous of all the attention his parents are giving to The Baby? Bumpfizzle’s confusion at Earthling behaviours, as reported in his diary and his frequent reports back to Plonk, are hilarious, and his adventures are ridiculous, from eating the cat’s food to biting his teacher (to check if humans would make a good source of food for Plonkers) and attempting to sacrifice a goat. Elina Braslina's playful, Quentin Blake-like illustrations bring Bumpfizzle's adventures on Earth delightfully to life.
