A reissued book, I'm so glad this one made it back into print! What a fun book to read one-on-one or to a group. Aliens of various shapes, sizes, faces, etc., decide to come to earth to fight. That is until they're frightened by something that scares them off. You'll just have to check this one out to find out what it is that frightens them away.

This was a book recommended by a children's lit expert. I couldn't find it at the library and when I saw how much other people loved it I took a chance and bought it for my kids. It's pretty funny and the pictures are pretty hilarious too. I'm glad we added it to our collection.

Ha! I like how after every page the kids in storytime can yell "The ALIENS ARE COMING!" Because let's face it. Summer storytime books need something where the kids can yell every page. Plus how funny that the kids are what scare the aliens off. Alien storytime book, check.

My daughter picked this book to read, and then her interest in it faded as the book wore on. The story is almost nonexistent and the end is a let down.
