It’s time for another Who’s in Your Book? book. This book’s Who is an adorable little alien whose spaceship has crashed through its pages.

I managed to find an excerpt at Penguin UK so prepare yourself for image overload!

The interaction begins almost straight away because we need to find out just Who has invaded our book.

No! Don’t be mean to our potential intergalactic friend. What would Mulder think if he saw you being anything less than welcoming?

A spaceship has crash-landed in your book!
What a lot of smoke!
I think something is there....
Blow the smoke away
and turn the page....

And that's the start of this lovely interactive story. Keep turning the pages. Let's get this alien back home.

Fletcher has wrote another fun interactive, There's an ______ in your book.

Definitely a great addition to the series.

I love how interactive this book series is, great for reading with kids at home or for storytime! The illustrations are always on point and there’s even a surprise cameo or two for lovers of this series and author!

Such an adorable way to be interactive with a book AND teach children about acceptance and diversity.

Interactive book that would be fun for PreK kids. Works best as a book that the child can manipulate while the child-caregiver reads. Love the illustrations and the humor.

Tom Fletcher and Greg Abbott, the British author/illustrator team who previously collaborated on There’s a Monster in Your Book and There's a Dragon in Your Book , return to the form in this third title in the series, this time devoted to a little alien who crash lands on Earth. The reader is given instructions throughout - shaking the book, turning it different ways, and so on - as the story proceeds to explore how the little alien can be helped. In the end, a character from one of the p ...more

Interactive books are great fun. If you are familiar with and are a fan of any of the books by Herve Tullet then this is another book that is well worth your time.

When an alien crash lands into the book you are holding in your very hands it is up to you to help get the little thing back into space. Or perhaps alien can stay on planet earth…

This is a fabulously fun interactive book filled with illustrations that are big, bold, colourful and fun. Young readers will love making funny faces, shoutin

I haven't read the previous entries into this series, however they should be fun if this one is anything to go by. It uses a clever concept which uses the physical book itself as an 'interactive' story device. The reader is encouraged to partake in various actions to help the titular alien who has crash landed inside the book. The illustrations are bright, characterful and nicely done. Overall it's definitely a parent and child bonding book the kids will love. ...more

I would rate There's an Alien in Your Book higher than five stars if it was possible, as I gave There's a Monster in Your Book five stars and I enjoyed this one even more.
It's just so cute; it gets parents and children involved, it gets the little ones really excited because of the antics of the alien as he crash lands in the book and needs our help to get home, and there's even a cameo from the Monster!
In the same vein of "The Monster at the End of This Book" and "Shake the Magic Tree," this very brightly illustrated book reminds me of that Black Books episode where Bernard & Manny write a children's book -- there's something condescending about it. But the kids enjoyed it, and it's getting a fair amount of checkouts in the library so go ahead and get it, if only for the really cute illustrations. ...more

This book was made for library storytellings and other animated, interactive readings for children. I love how the author creatively involves his audience and manipulates the pages of the book. The message is great too! It focuses on not judging others by our preconceived notions of who someone is based on what they look like.

What a fun read aloud! This is an interactive, silly, fun book about an alien stuck in your book. Things get turned upside down (literally) trying to get him out! The illustrations are so cute. It reminds me of the old Grover book, "There's a Monster at the End of This Book" mixed with "Press Here" "Mix It Up" books by Herve Tullet. ...more

Tom Fletcher does it again. I love all these books, especially for storytime. They're so interactive that kids stay engaged the whole time. And I LOVE that the monster makes an appearance in this one and becomes the alien's friend. The illustrations are so stinking cute. New storytime favorite, right here. Love it. ...more

I absolutely adore these books - as an adult, and for a child... I love the interaction, the humour and -the flow of writing! A must-have collection for any young child and a must-read for just about anyone!

A cute interactive book about an alien that crashes on Earth. It’s a little mean in the beginning, but the narrator evens out. “Oh no! It’s crying... Perhaps we shouldn’t have been so mean. Pat the alien’s head to make it feel better.”

cute colorful interactive book about an alien. "Blow the smoke away, and turn the page". It acknowledges that we're all weird and wonderful, and alien finds a monster friend who fixes his spaceship at the end. ...more

We like books with aliens and we also like books that interact with the readers by asking for assistance to help the characters. So, this was a really fun book to come across and read while we were doing our space unit study. Perfect for preschool aged children.

Funny and interactive for storytime. At first I didn't like the beginning when the reader criticizes the alien due to it's appearance and said due to that it doesn't belong. I just felt uncomfortable reading that. Happy to see the reader redeems himself ...more

The kids really enjoyed participating in the book. Second time around though they refused to make fun of the alien. Such compassion and caring. They loved and it really engaged them the more they heard it

This is such a creative story.... an alien in your book! I think this would be fun for kids because of the imaginative qualities it has. The illustrations are also fun with the alien, but could perhaps be more detailed, but just my opinion! Cute book.

The narrator tells the story of what you would do with the alien who landed in your book and what you would do or could do to help the alien repair his spaceship and get back to where he came from. Colorful illustrations and comparing him/her to you.
