Publisher's Summary

Soar into space with this glorious love story of alien folk, from the number one bestselling author and illustrator of The Gruffalo and Stick Man.

'By a loobular lake on a far-off planet

There lived a young Smed, and her name was Janet.

Not far away, on a humplety hill,

There lived a young Smoo by the name of Bill.'

The Smeds (who are red) never mix with the Smoos (who are blue).

So when a young Smed and Smoo fall in love, their families strongly disapprove.

But peace is restored and love conquers all in this happiest of love stories. There’s even a gorgeous purple baby to celebrate!

Friendship, love, adventure and togetherness are at the heart of this joyful story.

"Blast off with the most exciting book yet from the creator of The Gruffalo. Get ready for a wild and wonderful journey through space in a book that is perfect for reading together." (The Sun)

"The Gruffalo team’s own Jabberwocky, with rhyme and nonsense words but a happy ending, inventively illustrated by Scheffler." (The Times)
