Note: One of four Sarah Jane Adventures books published as part of the “Bug Club” schools literacy programme. Each of these books is a 24-page photo-illustrated novelisation based on a particular SJA Season 3 episode — this one was based on The Gift, while the other 3 books were Judoon Afternoon (based on Prisoner of the Judoon), The Haunted House (based on The Eternity Trap) and Painting Peril (based on Mona Lisa’s Revenge). All four books are aimed at schoolchildren in Year 2 (i.e. aged 6-7). Four Doctor Who episodes received a similar treatment in 2011 (although aimed at an older audience): The Eleventh Hour, The Time of Angels, Victory of the Daleks and The Lodger.
Life on Earth can be an adventure too!
Sarah Jane and her friends meet aliens called the Blathereen and invite them to dinner... but are these aliens as friendly as they seem?
