It’s the year 2040, and thanks to astonishing advances in space exploration technology, humans have made first contact with a variety of astonishing alien civilizations. United in an intergalactic coalition called the Unified Federation of Galaxies, Earthlings now have access to the profound wisdom of far more advanced beings from across the cosmos.

As interplanetary travel and immigration become commonplace, the Sprantle family moves from their homeworld to Melbourne, Australia when Mr. Blaptet Sprantle accepts a position with the Australian Space Agency. For young Spleebe Sprantle and his sister Pweedle, fitting in with the earthlings poses an unexpected challenge, as the sibling aliens struggle to align their eccentric appearances and mannerisms to blend into this utterly foreign society.

Eager to assimilate, the well-meaning extraterrestrial newcomers soon discover that being accepted is far more easily said than done. In his fish-out-of-water quest to be understood, precocious young Spleebe learns that even across galaxies, the things that make you different are often the very things that make you stand out.

Overflowing with humour and heart, The Adventures of Spleebe is an out-of-this-world coming-of-age tale about embracing your uniqueness while navigating the winding roads that lead to belonging. As Spleebe forges unlikely friendships with his new human pals, he shows Earth’s children that being an alien on the inside is something to celebrate.

Sandy was born in England and emigrated to Australia in 1987. She always had the desire to write for children and would write poetry and short stories for her own children’s entertainment. Sandy has always been interested in science and astronomy, and in this book has found a way of introducing children to the subject.
