My 5th grade home room teacher let me read this series, and I fell in love with it. It just mezmerized me. It was funny, scary, eerie, creepy and exciting. I finally found a used copy, but never ended up reading it again! I need to dig it out and do it.

This series is worth a few dollars on the used section of your favorite bookseller site. Just DO it! :)

I first read this in the 80s when I was a child, after meeting the author at a big summer party hosted by friends of the family. I remember as a child that the challenges presented to Barney seemed problematic at the time. It was a pleasure to have found these books again and to re-read them.

This book for juveniles about an encounter between an earth boy and a boy from a UFO is handled very well. It is believable.
