Like The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy for kids! Readers will love the "myriad of alien cultures", and the "unique take on the humans vs. extraterrestrials trope" in this adventurous science fiction mystery to stop aliens from stealing planet Earth's water.
Packed full of science, math and language skills, "this book presents an engaging and entertaining learning experience. There's plenty of action to keep kids interested, and... a fantastic message about fitting in."
Ilnoblet Elmer and the Alien Water Thieves is a sci-fi story with a difference for middle graders, young teens and middle schoolers.
Ilnoblet Elmer is an ordinary boy. Except for one thing; he's from another planet - and his family, friends and teachers don't know. This alien superhero has lots of adventures trying to defeat tricky and sticky aliens, including the Mootilokygogrifies (that's a mouthful to say - and they're even worse when hiding in your garden shed). All in between going to school and handing in his homework on time!
The story has fun references to science, water, numbers, space travel, planets, extraterrestrials, and some special words and numbers that have an interesting effect on aliens! There's even a glossary to help with understanding Ilnoblet's Gapitonian language - you'll be speaking it in no time!
"Science fiction readers who want a little fun with their science would enjoy this book... This adventure story is fit for both kids and kids at heart... With great pleasure, I rate Ilnoblet Elmer and the Alien Water Thieves 4 out of 4 stars." - Review by OnlineBookClub.org.
