Q Pootle 5: The Great Space Race

This cute alien isn’t the invading type. But he’s taking over the CBeebies channel. See if you can spot him on TV. (Or in your back garden.) Far away in space, amongst the billions of stars, is a little planet called Okidoki. You might be able to see it if you look very hard, far beyond the Milky Way. This magical planet is the home of a friendly little alien called Q Pootle 5. Our favourite outer-space buddy. Trust us, if all aliens were this cute, we’d leave Earth in an instant. A classic Nick Butterworth picture book delight.
