Luke Lloyd Alienoid

ATYP_Luke Llyod AlienoidFresh from the imagination of award winning screenwriter John Armstrong, and the winner of the 2013 ATYP Foundation Commission Luke Lloyd: Alienoid speaks to the little bit of alien in all of us.

Luke is smart, funny, shy and highly imaginative – but has no friends at school. In fact, he feels like he’s not even of the same species as the other kids in his class. But that isn’t surprising, because he’s not. Luke’s father (whom he has never met) came from a distant planet – which makes Luke half human, half alien. He’s an ‘alienoid’. Which explains a lot, thinks Luke.

With the help of his dog Astro, the class mouse Kevin, and his babysitter Lola, Luke must use his brilliant alien super powers to defeat the class bully, find his alien dad and outsmart his teacher before Dad’s Day begins. Will he make it?
