Although aimed at children, it was a delightful read and quite fitting for these strange times. It is the story of a young boy who was miraculously saved from an accident that killed his mother and he didn't think he wanted a new mother, as he was very happy just living with his father, eating and doing whatever he felt like. All goes well until his father meets someone who then moves into his world. He and his friends decide she is an alien and plans are made to thwart an invasion and they even reported it to the police! It is a very fanciful story and will appeal to the age group for which it is intended, but as a grandmother, I could also enjoy reading this to my grandchildren. It covered lots of issues and the ending was lovely!
Toni has shown a great deal of understanding for this age group and has written a fabulous story. She is known to me for her more mature books but shows her many skills with this book.
A very likeable short book.

Cody, the young hero if this book, is raised by his relaxed and nonchalant father after his mother is mowed down unexpectedly by a runaway bus. Cody is spared because he flies out of his pram and across into the hands of the police constable who catches him like a baseball.
Cody is a happy boy who lives with no rules and little parental intervention. His father works from home in the afternoons, and is not given to checking on Cody's homework or making sure it is done. They have an interesting diet too that comprises of sweet and sickly cereal in the morning and some fabulously unhealthy father created meals in the evenings.
Cody is happy and doesn't believe he needs a mother like other children have. He has freedom and he is happy living with his father.
One day, Cody's father needs to go away to an out-of-town conference. Cody cannot go with him and is sent to his friend's home for this period. Cody's friend has a mother and she sets about trying to mend Cody's lackadaisical ways. Just before Cody is due to go home, he gets a quick call from his father telling him he has met and married a woman he met at the conference.
Cody is horrified and returns home quite determined to reject this new mother, but things don't go quite according to plan. Cody discovers things about his new mother than lead him to believe she is an alien.
This really is a rollicking good story and young children will love it.
