New Synopsis They Came From Planet Zabalooloo

We are friends on epic adventure to Planet Earth! We got space ship! YEAHHH! Look – it’s got steering wheel, space biscuits and party area. OOH LA LA!

From the author of Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise and the team behind Don’t Call Me Choochie Pooh! comes a wildly inventive, contemporary picture book comedy about aliens.

Boron, Bazoo and Zob are three extra-terrestrials on a mission. They’re going to take something brilliant from Earth and bring it back to their home planet, Zabalooloo. Something like …an enormous elephant! But this goofy, giddy trio are simply too overexcited – they’re never going to catch anything if they keep wiggle-woggle dancing, taking selfies and shouting, “Ooh la la!”.


Zoron, Bazoo and Zob, are three little aliens from the distant planet Zabalooloo. They have travelled form afar, to Earth because they want to take something back home. Something big!

What will they catch in their Supersonic-Sucker with Shrinker Nozzle to take back with them?

They Came from Planet Zabalooloo, is a very funny children’s book. It features some amazing illustrations drawn by Kate Hindley. Illustrations that are striking and shine right off the page from their black backgrounds.

Each alien has their own personality which is resonated throughout the book. Zoron is clever, Bazoo is strong, whilst Zob is very excitable.

They Came From Planet Zabalooloo is a fascinating and completely attention-grabbing story. I can see children laughing at the little aliens, and their attempts to capture something to take back home with them.
