The Stewie Scraps series is ideal for reluctant boy readers, but other children will love the stories as well. Stewie Scraps doesn't do sport. He hasn't got any time for sums or things like that, but he loves designing and making things. Stewie wonders what will happen when the Earth is overrun by mutants. "We must find new planets, Sir" he explains to Mr Melling, his teacher. After school, Stewie rushes home with his prototype. "We just need a few extra bits on the landing gear ... and then ... all systems go ... tomorrow night," he tells Bugzy, his pet rat. But where will Stewie's Space Racer take him?
