Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“With a tone that veers between crass and cautionary, the nonstop absurdities and blatant hyperbole will easily find an audience with middle-graders.” —Booklist

“Andy Griffiths kicks up the silliness a few notches in this collection of ridiculous stories featuring zombie kittens, rocket stealing ants, and, of course, killer koalas from outer space.” —TucsonCitizen.com

“Plenty of kids who will laugh their heads off…” —Publishers Weekly

“The genius of this subversive little tome lies in its perfect combination of zany subject matter that will appeal to a broad spectrum of readers and a format that make it easily accessible to beginning and struggling readers.” —Kirkus, starred review

Killer Koalas from Outer Space and Lots of Other Very Bad Stuff that Will Make Your Brain Explode!

Killer Koalas from Outer Space
Killer koalas from outer space: They look cute and cuddly, but they'll rip off your face!
 

They come here disguised as cute marsupials, but they're really face-ripping extraterrestrials!
 

So, if I were you, from this place I would race before those koalas (with unseemly haste) get out their claws and RIP OFF YOUR FACE!

The text and pictures cut off on the bottom. It gets very annoying. The story itself is weird and wacky.
