Your Alien Returns

Your Alien Returns is the sequel to the critically acclaimed "Your Alien."  Did you have a chance to read the first book?  We didn't...but, that didn't stop us from enjoying this recent release by Tammi Sauer.

We are introduced to a little boy who gets a visit from his best friend, who turns out to be an alien.  His alien friends invites him over to his planet for a play date.  But, when the little boy gets there, he feels out of place.  With the help of his best friend, the little boy is able to fit right in and have a blast spending time with his BFF the alien.

Both of my girls thought this was a cute story.  They wished they had an alien as a friend. But, then got to thinking about what it would be like to visit another planet, and then got them wondering if they, too, would be able to fit in like the little book in the story.

In addition a cute story, which is easy to understand and follow along with, the illustrations in the book really make for a more enjoyable read.  Full of color and detail, you feel like you are right there with the little boy and his alien friend as they visit the extraterrestrial's home planet.  

My girls when asked how they liked this book gave it two thumbs up.  And, I know when you and your child read it, you will agree, and be recommending to your friends and family, also.
