A hilarious and inclusive adventure for readers aged 5+

Younger readers will be inspired by young inventor Scooter and his alien buddy Fizzbee!

This book has it all - aliens, jam, doughnuts, snails, one dastardly and very dodgy villain, and one brilliant kid fizzing with ideas that will save the day! Scooter and Fizzbee team up to save Scooter’s book of inventions from Daffy Dodgy and her guinea pig sidekick in this laugh-out-loud adventure, brilliantly illustrated by Jenny Taylor.


Scooter McLay’s cerebral palsy affects how quickly he can move his body, but his hyper-creative brain is a constant fizz of brilliant ideas. He spends every day inventing top secret recipes and machines for his family’s jam factory. There’s just one thing missing ... a pet, to share it all with. Or better still, a friend. When a tiny alien named Fizzbee crashes through the factory window, she might just be the answer. Now it’s all hands on deck, as they team up to save the factory from dastardly neighbour Daffy Dodgy.

Chrissie Sains grew up in Billericay, Essex, where she spent her childhood seeking adventure and finding trouble. Chrissie has a background in marketing and events but now writes full time.
