Praise for QPootle5:
“An alien story with a difference! There’s lots of laughs in this friendly, funny story and we loved the wonderfully low-tech DIY spaceship.”
Praise for Albert le Blanc

‘’Butterworth’s drawings have a comforting clarity and his stories develop straightforwardly so the book works for just about everyone.’’ Sunday Times
‘’Triumphant’’ The ObserverFrom the Back Cover:
'Q Pootle five has landed.
He has come to earth.
But earth is not where Q Pootle 5 wants to be.'
Q Pootle five is on his way to a moon party but one of his rocket boosters won't boost and his spaceship just won't fly. The worried little alien enlists some help. But will a small green frog, three birds and a cat called Colin really be able to fix the spaceship and get Q Pootle to his party on time?
"All the classic Butterworth hallmarks of originality, imagination and gentle humour."
