Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melissa Joy Adams
Thousands of people claim to have seen a UFO and 1 out of 50 people believe they have been abducted by aliens. Abductees often report similar experiences and describe aliens that look remarkably alike. Rooney takes the reader through an alien abduction experience from the initial abduction to the flashbacks that often plague abductees. Famous abduction stories and historical alien references are also covered, including the story of Betty and Barney Hill, the Nazca Lines and the Roswell alien. Rooney's book is part of the "Crabtree Contact" series, structured for reluctant readers. Like most in the series, this book presents readers with an interesting subject matter, compelling graphics, and a low level vocabulary easily understood by the target audience. To further help the reader, a short section of "Need-to-Know" words, their definitions, an index and Internet resources are provided. Each of these features adds to the book, making it particularly good for student reports. Rooney presents the very basic material in an attention-grabbing way that reluctant readers will appreciate. Advanced readers and those interested in more detailed information will have to look elsewhere. Reviewer: Melissa Joy Adams

    What this book ACTUALLY says is that many people (almost all of them Americans) believe they have been abducted by aliens, and these are the things they report. I think they are all totally deluded, to be honest. But the book is about the reported phenomenon of alien abduction. There are no alien abductions and I don't suggest there are.

    I certainly don't have any kind of MISSION (rather a religious word!) and my website doesn't suggest that I do - it simply shows the books I have written. Nor does it include the word 'educate'.

    The WORST childrens Book EVER! Offensive!

    In Anne Rooney's book Alien Abduction, she presents FICTION as FACT to young readers. It speaks of what aliens physically "do" to you when "You are abducted." It incites fear and trepidation in the fragile minds of children. Also, it depicts a BLASPHEMOUS painting of the Baptism of Christ by Aert de Gelder, in which she then suggests aliens are connected to Christ.One quick look at the authors' website and you will know exactly the type of values, and her MISSION to "educate" children.

    Parents BEWARE! Do your homework on what books are in your child's school and home libraries.
