    At one point, late on in the book, I wondered what the youth of today would turn out like if they continue to read stories like these of aliens, magic, subtle creatures that mess with people s head and other things that might exist but probably never do I still do.

    MapHead, I guess the title says it all , is a story about an alien called Booth MapHead who can show a map of any place across his head This story centers around two aliens, a father Powers and a son Booth who comes to Earth in search for Booth s Earthling mother When Booth and his father arrive on Earth they live on a tomato and often find the modern society quite bewildering as he struggles to understand rhymes and idioms used by the humans As the story proceeds Booth finds out that MapHead, I guess the title says it all , is a story about an alien called Booth MapHead who can show a map of any place across his head This story centers around two aliens, a father Powers and a son Booth who comes to Earth in search for Booth s Earthling mother When Booth and his father arrive on Earth they live on a tomato and often find the modern society quite bewildering as he struggles to understand rhymes and idioms used by the humans As the story proceeds Booth finds out that one day a lady was hit by lightning, but fortunately for her she was saved a gold suited alien, who happened to be Booth s father This woman and the alien begin to have a relationship and go on to travel across the universe, however she soon starts to miss Earth and wishes to return As Power is desperately in love with Booth s mother, he wipes away her memory and allows her to return to Earth.I remember having this book read to me during story time and could not help myself but fall asleep, however once I re read this book as an adult, I could not help but feel a sense of sadness that I could not enjoy this story as a child It contains various aspects of humour as well as dealing with abandonment issues Having said this, I feel that children will still find it hard to engage with this story as I felt the beginning of this was very slow

    This was a great read even though it was a book aimed at a younger audience It had an original story and interesting ideas and characters alike I recommend it to anybody wanting a good but quick read.

    A weird story of a boy out of place Is he alien, gypsy, advanced human, robot Who knows This left me with an unfinished unsatisfied feeling With a bit extra it probably wouldn t work but still I m not sure how I feel about this book now I m finished.

    Here s the deal two aliens, father and son, come down to Earth normal English town to find the boy s mother When a young woman is hit by lightning, the gold suit wearing alien saves her and obviously some sort of intimate relationship ensues After travelling the Universe a bit, the Earthling mother wants to return home after that request is granted, her memory is wiped This is all explained later, but what we start out with is the two aliens hanging out in a tomato grower s greenhouse Here s the deal two aliens, father and son, come down to Earth normal English town to find the boy s mother When a young woman is hit by lightning, the gold suit wearing alien saves her and obviously some sort of intimate relationship ensues After travelling the Universe a bit, the Earthling mother wants to return home after that request is granted, her memory is wiped This is all explained later, but what we start out with is the two aliens hanging out in a tomato grower s greenhouse.It s a sweet story, inventive in places, well enough written, but I just didn t enjoy reading it all that much I don t have a good feel for whether or not it would be a kid pleaser

    MapHead by Lesley Howarth is an intriguing fantasy Twelve year old MapHead is conceived of a human mother, who was rescued from death by lightning bolt by his alien father, Powers Powers has reared MapHead alone, but now they have returned to the English town where MapHead might find his mother This warm hearted tale unfolds tenderly, and somehow reminded me of Louis Sachar s Holes Written in a refreshing, original style, it s a story that takes quite a bit of concentration, and would be MapHead by Lesley Howarth is an intriguing fantasy Twelve year old MapHead is conceived of a human mother, who was rescued from death by lightning bolt by his alien father, Powers Powers has reared MapHead alone, but now they have returned to the English town where MapHead might find his mother This warm hearted tale unfolds tenderly, and somehow reminded me of Louis Sachar s Holes Written in a refreshing, original style, it s a story that takes quite a bit of concentration, and would be enjoyed by avid readers seeking a challenge

    Want to come closer to understanding how it feels to be truly alien Track down this novel or its sequels I think there are two or three , about a resident of the subtle world, of which our mundane one is but a part, who subsists OK, not all the time, but once is enough on a diet of salad dressing and liquified cat.
