This book is a simple plot with a spaceship landing and everyone being scared, but soon finding out the aliens are nice. I think this is a good conversation starter for kids to talk about the fear of the 'unknown.' The plot is simple though so I would keep this for ages 3rd grade or younger. Beautiful illustrations though!

I appreciated the twist at the end, but the prose itself was so basic that I wasn't engaged in the story and felt like I was being talked down to.

what comes first, The Twilight Zone or the book? regardless, the kids love the surprise revealed at the end of this story about a visitor from outer space.
