The buttheads have landed--and they're trying to wipe us out!

My best friend Lloyd and I had the perfect plan.

We started a blog to invite aliens to come to Earth and hang out--but only with us. That way, they wouldn't have to meet any boring world leaders or get cut open by scientists or anything like that. We'd just chill out, eat junk food, and play video games together.

Josh and his good friend Lloyd have a lot in common-- they both hate the Quentin, the kid in their class who is always making the cover of magazines, they both are interested in space aliens, and they both think their science teacher, Mr. Mudd, is a little too quirky. When the two go out for Josh's birthday with his parents to a Japanese restaurant, they are very surprised when they meet space aliens in the bathroom who take Josh's brand new iPhone! It's

#partner Thank you @kidlitexchange for a review copy of Buttheads from Outer Space by Jerry Mahoney. All opinions are my own. What if aliens have butts on the back of their heads, speak in farts, and act like sixth grade boys? Josh and Lloyd are two best friends who write a blog trying to attract aliens to Earth, never dreaming that aliens are out there reading! A plan to use the aliens to get back at their arch-nemesis, super genius Quentin, backfires, and the boys must stop the aliens from tak ...more

This book is squarely aimed at kids for its target audience, so it's not surprising that it missed me by a bit. An alien's name is Doodoofartmama. I can see it having kid appeal, but I don't think it will make many "Read Aloud for Family Joy" lists.

Completely hilarious and a far better-written novel than the title might lead you to expect. I expect (HOPE) many of my reluctant male readers will find this book irresistible. The tone of the appendixes was pitch perfect.

He is excited to finally be ruining something as beloved as fairy tales. He lives in Los Angeles with his husband, Drew, and their very silly children.
