Dear Earthling: Cosmic Correspondent is a quirky little epistolary story for young middle grade readers. We follow the story through letters written from Dethbert Jones, an alien who has set up a penpal relationship with a kid on Earth. Dethbert relates his day-to-day life on a planet that is eerily similar (but not quite the same) as Earth.

For me this was a little too pun-heavy, but I think a lot of new readers would really enjoy the play on words and utter silliness of the story. I would recommend this to some young readers I know.

Thank you to NetGalley and and Common Deer Press for providing me with a DRC of this book.
