A cute, funny story about an alien finding a penpal on Earth, and discovering all the ways they're the same. It's a funny story and I like the illustrations and jokes. This will be a good seller, if only for the chicksnail-hedge-podges!

Receiving an ARC did not affect my review in any way.

Dear Earthling,
I was interested to read in your last letter about the selfdefence class you go to on Earth called "karate". It sounds very different than the self-defence that Murder Evans taught us at Space Cadets last week which involved a lot of forward rolls.
For example, you wrote about blocking attacks with your fists and attempting to chop your opponent with the side of your hands. Murder Evans said that if someone comes at us we should either crumple to the ground and play dead, or try to distract them with a fiddly task such as doing up buttons.
I'm not entirely convinced those tactics would work on Stabwell Phillips, so I'm going to study karate instead.
