Back Cover Blurb
Sean is just about to take a bite out of an apple when he seems to hear a voice (from inside the apple) shouting... "STOP!" And to Sean's amazement the juicy, red apple turns into a pair of feet... a pair of legs... a slim, wiry body... a round impudent face... and back-to-front ears!
An alien called Watt.
But after him comes Jemadah — an extraterrestrial whose mission is to get Watt.
And the only person who can help Watt is Sean.

- Watt on Earth is a not-particularly-fondly remembered children's sci-fi TV series which ran for two seasons on BBC1 between 1991 and 1992, in which an alien named Watt comes to Earth and then spends most of his time causing complete chaos as he changes into different objects and tries to avoid another alien named Jemadah, who is trying to capture him.
Not to put too fine a point on it, Watt was a complete idiot (with back-to-front ears), and was hidden by young Sean and his family who happened to run the local newspaper.
- Watt on Earth was created by Pip and Jane Baker, whose previous science fiction work included A Matter of Balance for Season 2 of Space: 1999 (novelised by Michael Butterworth in The Space Jackers), and no less than three complete stories and an odd episode of Doctor Who.
Of the Doctor Who stories, only 1985's Mark of the Rani deserves to be re-watched — the appalling Terror of the Vervoids from Season 22, and the even worse Time and the Rani from Season 23, being amongst the lowest points in the programme's long history.
All three stories were novelised by Pip and Jane Baker for Target Books, as well as The Ultimate Foe, for which they had written the concluding episode.
