2009 год. Dad's new book has just arrived and the children are sitting down to read his latest adventure... Blasting off into space, Dad's on the hunt for aliens. He meets lots of them – cute, hairy, bug-eyed and scary – and, strangest of all, he falls in love. Dad brings his alien girl back to Earth, where they have a family and live happily ever after. When Dad's book is finished, the family are amused … because it's an extra-terrestrial, extra-true story – all about them!
