Space Invaders! by D.J. McGhee is an illustrated book for children about an alien invasion in the UK that would mostly appeal to boys, I feel. Two boys come across aliens who have landed in town. While the boys are scared of the aliens, they know something that might scare them. They release Spike, a fierce pit bull, to handle them. The aliens are typical little green men, but they will be recognizable to kids. Professor Brian Brain is a scientist who discovers the invasion and contacts the Prime Minister.

D.J. McGhee has created a beautifully illustrated world using bold and eye catching colours with Space Invaders! The artwork is colourful and there are lots of little details and extras in the pictures that will appeal to adults too if they are reading to their kids. Younger children may not notice but older children may notice this. This book is great for young kids and has an easy to read story line. The rhyming dialogue is fun for kids too. Overall, an entertaining book with definite appeal for young readers.
