Nelson is a brand-new series from DJ, food writer, TEDx speaker, charity founder and all-round funny guy, Andrew Levins.
Meet Nelson . . . he's an ordinary kid, just like you. Everyone thinks he's shy but, really, he's just bored.
Nelson hates vegetables. He hates the smell of them, he hates the look of them. Most of all, he hates eating them.
But what if they gave him superpowers? Superpowers he needs when an alien race he made up in class yesterday swoops into town and holds his school hostage, threatening to eat his teacher . . .
“This series will be a winner for children who love an elaborate action adventure, especially if they aren't too keen on their vegetables.”
Kids' Book Review
“A riotous adventure filled with chewed up pumpkin, grisly purple aliens and space travel, Nelson: Pumpkins and Aliens will have readers wanting to eat all their vegetables.”
The West Australian
“Nelson: Pumpkins and Aliens is sure to warm the hearts of primary school aged kids and the grownups who read along with their junior bookworms. The fun nature of the story is sure to delight even the most reluctant readers.”
Dark Matter Zine
“Gross and delightful in combination and deliberately funny, this ticks all the boxes for young readers.”
