This book includes a superb model of an alien abduction for children to press out and construct, created by top model-maker Keith Newstead. Turn the handle and watch in horror as the hapless victim is drawn up into the alien spacecraft! The rest of the book takes a fascinating look at the subject of extra-terrestrial life, from UFO sightings to close encounters of the first, second and third kinds, and the mysterious Men In Black. It recounts the many forms aliens have been reported to take - from the pointy-eared creatures in skintight clothing spotted by teenagers in Puerto Rico to the jelly-like grey creatures without arms and legs seen in Sweden. The famous Roswell Incident is also described. It comes with atmospheric and amusing illustrations by Chris Mould.

Keith Newstead is the UK's leading creator of 'automata' (moving models). He has made models for Madame Tussauds and the Tower of London.Review:
I itched to press out the glossy coloured shapes and make up the 3-D Egyptian tomb complete with moving corpses in 'Mummies', and the UFO model which abducts a human at the turn of a handle in 'Aliens', both by Keith Newstead. Some young friends did complete the models and they were ace! Modestly priced for such distinctive quality, including six pages of background information and cartoons.
