I thought I knew everything there was to know about my parents, like what they always eat for breakfast. Then one morning, everything changes. Mom suddenly hates tea and loves cornflakes and Dad’s scarfing down poached eggs like there’s no tomorrow—which, by the way, there may not be unless I can figure out what’s gone wrong. Can it really be that Mom and Dad have been rep ...more

Title: My Alien Parents
Author: R.L. Stine
Genre: Children's, Horror
Overall Rating: 3 stars

This quick little read from the children's master of horror was quite a good one, although it's not a book from the Goosebumps series, it's very reminiscent of it. In this, Rob wakes up one morning and everything has changed, his parents are acting differently, his dog is gone and now the only explanation would be that his p

I dunno what month that was but I read this one inside the bookstore sometime this year. I read it for the simple reason that it was so thin. Well, it ended funny and the start was kinda creepy. That's all there is to it. Rob's a robot, after all. And he was unaware of it.

The book is quite interesting and funny if you look at it in another angle, it also gives you the creeps at some point

I absolutely love R.L. Stine. I always have. And even his short little kids books are not disappointing in my opinion.

I was excited when I pulled this book out of a box of what seemed like a million books that we had stored in our shed. I had no idea that it was there, but apparently my husband had been holding out on me.

This book reminded of Invasion of The Body Snatchers, if there were a kids version. And as it seemed, there was even a reference to the movie in My Alien Parents.

It was a very
Kinda cute, but utterly terrible when compared to other works by the author. The goosebumps books are top notch kids lit when compared to this dreck. I don't even know why it's so bad. Just that it is.

very good book it takes you in one direction and at the end leads you in the opposite direction, so you might think you know how the book might end but do you??? The Author of the book keeps you suspense...

Like all R.L. Stine's, this is an easy and fun read that has more humor than horror. But this story was unoriginal and predictable and, therefore, ultimately disappointing. The ending also makes the narrative itself impossible.

An interesting book, although more explanation at the end would have been nice.

I read this with my 7-year-old son. It was slower paced than other R.L. Stine books we have read, so it was harder to keep him interested.
