Delighted to share the news of the latest release from Toni Pike which is for children, Brody Cody and the Stepmother from Outer Space.
About the book
Brody Cody is almost eight years old and definitely, absolutely, positively does NOT want a mother. His mother died when he was a baby but life with his dad is just perfect.
Brody is horrified when his father goes away to a publishing conference and returns with a wife, Pandora Smith, who is a children’s author. His life spirals out of control as he is forced to eat healthy food, do his homework and help with some chores.
Even worse, he and his friends suspect that his new stepmother might be an alien from outer space.
One of the early reviews for the book
Brody Cody and his father have been living by themselves since the death of his mother in a horrible accident while Brody was a baby! Brody is saved by a policeman making an excellent catch of the baby! Both Brody and his father have become used to a very flexible lifestyle . This suddenly starts to change when Brody’s father meets an author of children’s books which were once loved by Brody and marries her when he goes out of town for a conference.
This event coincides with what Brody and his friends perceive as an alien invasion and Brody is convinced that his stepmother is an alien from outer space!!
How he comes to develop love and affection for her, how she wins him over forms the content of this exemplary children’s book! The narrative is excellent and the characters are very likeable and adorable!!
Thanks for the ARC of this book, Ms. Pike. It was a thoroughly enjoyable reading experience!!
