This is another favourite childhood book, one of my early forays into reading sci fi stories. Cant remember all of this story really but that the ailen ship landed in Farnham outside London and that the ailen boy was helped by another Earth boy and that they both take on baddie ailens! A charming book that is remembered with affection!

One of the first scifi books I read as a kid, I think this one's pretty good for kids who want to get introduced to the whole alien genre. The plotline's fairly simple - Marcou, an alien boy who crashlanded on Earth, must help Earth repel an invasion of mind-controlling aliens - and the people are rather likeable, except for the generic evil aliens of course. (I long for the day when I can find an evil alien that _doesn't_ control your brain.)
