I chose this book thinking,”well, it’s something to read” But it ended up being a great page-turner! I was kind of expecting this book to be a little unsatisfying because it’s not really the style of books that I normally read, but it ended up being really good. I only had a problem with the ending, It felt as though something was missing, or as though the author was trying to fit the information on one page. Though the ending was a bit of a bust, throughout the book was good. When Rod was just a child, he told a lie and hated it, so he never lies. Then the aliens come and he has to decide whether to lie, or to get sent to space prison. The boy who has bullied him ever since he showed up to school has a secret though. He’s the reason the aliens are here! He feels no empathy, that is the worst crime of all! It is a nice, silly book that includes two cute little children who refer to themselves as “Thing 1” and “Thing 2”. I surely recommend it to anyone who is in the mood for something fun and cute. You won’t be sorry!

Aliens Ate My Homework by Bruce Covillenis a Comedy and I would say suspenseful novel. The story is about a young man name Rod Allbright who has been visited my by a group of small Aliens who requested his help to help find and capture a alien criminal who is living amoung the humans. On the night that the aliens came to Rod, He had to complete a very important project that he was required to hand in the next day but the alien Grakker happened to beam it with his ray gun causing the project to become destroyed. With telling his teacher that the aliens ate his homework, she didn't believe him because she didn't believe in aliens and she thought that he was lying to her about actually doing the homework. The aliens also realized that the boy Billy who ocassionally bullied Rod was the real space alien who came and migrated to the Earth as a young Child.Was this review helpful?

Aliens Ate My Homework was a exciting and intriguing story. At the end of every chapter their is a cliffhanger so the reader can't stop reading after 6 or 7 chapters. A 7th grader named Rod Allbrite is the main character in this story. One day, he is doing his homework and all of a sudden a spaceship crashed through his bedroom window, but the window and the spaceship are the least of his problems. Rod and the 5 aliens from the spaceship go on to look for the biggest criminal from all of the galaxies, but Rod got in a little more trubble then he expected to. I recmmend this to anyone who likes exciting and funny stories.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

My favorite aspect of the story is the characters. I like how the relationship changed between the aliens and Rod. My favorite aspect of the story is when the aliens drafted Rod and made him help them. Rod is a honest boy; he never tell a lie. When the aliens came and ate his homework, Rod had no other choice but to tell the truth. Everyone thought he is crazy. The novel also contain caring friendship between aliens and Rod. Aliens Ate My Homework is a very interesting novel which is great for anyone who is interested in aliens and science fiction. Aliens Ate My Homework is an exciting story about a boy being drafted by aliens and forced to help them.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
