Spaceboy: A super-sonic adventure with David Walliams. Out now!

Go back to the Space Race with No.1 bestselling author David Walliams for a breathless cinematic adventure full of mystery, action, laughs and surprises – and a secret that could change the course of history…

Stuck on a remote farm with her awful Aunt Dorothy, twelve-year-old orphan Ruth spends every night gazing at the stars through her old, battered telescope, dreaming of OUTER SPACE and of adventure.

Then one night she spots a UFO blazing across the sky… before crash-landing in the cornfield. When the spaceship opens and reveals a strange visitor from another planet, Ruth gets the adventure she wished for.

But the alien has an unexpected secret – one that will take Ruth further than she could have ever imagined.
