The campaign is going well. The SPHDZ word is getting out. 1000's of kids have signed up to say they are SPHDZ. But things haven't gotten any easier for Michael K. The SPHDZ are still trying to blend in to our Earth culture, but not very successfully. They're still mixing up Thanksgiving, cartoon plots, holidays, and commercials. This makes it especially hard for Michael ...more

Spaceheadz Book #2 certainly outdid the first book. Sure, I enjoyed the first book, but I REALLY loved this one! I have yet to run across a Jon Scieszka book I don't like, so I'm not surprised. In this book, sometimes his writing reminded me a lot of Lemony Snicket or Christopher Moore, two of my favorite writers so I had to grin. Those moments remind me about why I love reading so much and what it is my favorite authors do that make them my favorite. The only thing I would have changed was at t ...more

If you’re Spaceheadz and you know it clap your hands!

Michael K. and his alien friends are back in the second action-packed installment of the SPHDZ series. Spaceheadz Bob, Jennifer, and Major Fluffy are still trying to disguise themselves and blend in at Michael’s elementary school, where they’re working undercover to recruit as many people to sign up for the SPHDZ website as possible. It’s a life or death situation because their home base will deactivate the Earth if they can’t get enough sign

Only slightly closer to three point one four million and one kids committing to be spaceheadz, Michael K. is still trying to protect Jennifer and Bob from being discovered as aliens. Friends Venus and TJ know something is off with Jennifer and Bob, they just can't put their finger on it, until they witness a disturbance caused by the aliens.
The five friends help a class of kindergarteners stage a play about Little Red Riding Hood, making plans to get more spaceheadz and figure out the differenc
My son loved this book. Dad & I enjoyed it. It was written for intelligent young people, so all those reviews I've read that pretty much hated it, well, every book is not for everyone. (And I am developing the perception that those who hate this book series take books WAY TOO SERIOUSLY and need to learn to laugh. There are lessons in laughing. Very scientific, serious ones.)

If you over-analyze commercials or even if you get their songs/jingles stuck in your head, you'll enjoy this book. I ha

Michael K and the Spaceheadz (Ben and Jennifer) must get 500,001 people to become Spaceheadz or the earth will "Switch off". But finally, Michael K has some help from his web savvy classmates: Venus and TJ. It's not easy ... especially when they find out that in "earth years", Ben and Jennifer are only 5 years old (YIKES! Kindergartners!) And, of course, Agent Umber of the AAA is still on the look out for Spaceheadz. And, in the meantime, some company called "DarkWave X" has hired Dad K to ...more

Michael K. is having an interesting Grade 5 year. He has started at a new school and was immediately teamed up with two other new students. To say they are a little wierd would be an understatement. They are, in fact, aliens who have been sent to earth to prevent our destruction, and they have recruited Michael K. to help.

In book two, Micheal has recruited his friends TJ and Venus to help him with the project. They agree to do this, while dealing with a kindergarten play and advancing AAA agents

More laughs care of our buddy Jon Scieszka and those three wacky aliens. The second installment of the Spaceheadz series brings the laughs and gives some additional information that helps to explain Bob, Jennifer and Fluffy's mission (and weirdness!). My son and I read this together, and continued to giggle away at the silliness. We used the online resources and fun a bit more this time around, especially LOVING Fluffy's Translator-- those provide some of the best lines of the entire book!!

considering I didn't read the first book I was a tad lost at first. the kids should like it. It was the first book I read on an e-reader. My library bought 2 Nooks and 2 Kindles for us to learn on and to lend out. Sphdz #2 was on the Kindle.

Maybe not quite as good as the first book, but still fabulous. I love Major Fluffy and the idea of Spaceheadz kindergartners. I read this one in a bookstore, laughing out loud at a lot of the situations and illustrations. Keep them coming!

Good follow up to the first book. Perfect for readers who love series books. Good mix of text and illustrations to break up pages. One that will not be sitting on my shelves at the library for long.

Humorous, adventurous story about Michael K. Venus, and TJ trying to get 3.14 million and one spaceheadz within the next 700 hours or earth will end. Some fun, clean humor and lots of wacky events.

Kids who like off-the-wall reading will like this. Even hesitant readers will like the black ink drawings and short chapters and side bars.

This is such a clever series with such a fun concept. I love this 2nd book in the series. They are so funny and well written. I wish I had the time to read the whole series. Such fun books!
