Letters from an Alien Schoolboy by Ros Asquith
Piccadilly Press ISBN 9781848120945

In Mission Earth, Flowkwee disguises himself as a schoolboy to help his father study Earthlings, that rather pathetic race who can't zoom or fly, or do much else according to Flowkwee. He can't believe how disgustingly useless and ugly his new school friends are. He reports his adventures back to his friend on Faa in this laugh-out-loud book. Earthlings, especially younglings, will enjoy this fantastic book with its quirky illustrations.
