The Martian and The Supermarket by Penelope Lively

Reviewer: Evie aged 6

The characters in this book are Martian, baby, Judy, Mum, Nora and the dog. I really liked the characters. They made me feel worried in the beginning but then I knew they were good and was not so worried.

I think this book was fun to read because The Martian had just passed his driving test and the rocket went wrong. He found a little gap to get through so he slept in the supermarket.

I loved the book so much. My favourite part was when Judy took the Martian home. There was a scary part when Judy took him home because he could have been a baddie. I have learnt that it is hard to drive cars.

I would recommend this book to my friends because it does not go on and on about the same things.
