Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Once again, Alistair saves the day-actually the planet-in another of his fantastic adventures. As the boy genius blasts off in his space ship in search of the most unusual plant life he can find, he spots an alien vessel heading toward Earth. He turns back, and is horrified to see the invaders put all the people in sight in suspended animation, while they, too, collect plant specimens. Intrigued by Alistair, the creatures invite themselves over to his house and closely study his every move. It isn't until the last page that readers discover the reason for their intense interest: when they remove their space helmuts, each alien is shown to be an exact clone of the boy wonder! Bollen's mixed-medium cartoons aptly extend Sadler's wacky plot with delightful effect. Interspersed with humor and zany situations throughout, Alien Invasion is sure to be another ``Alistair'' read-aloud hit.- Claudia Cooper, Ft. Stockton Independent School District, TX
Carolyn Phelan
When Alistair, a paragon of schoolboy virtue and the hero of several popular picture books, learns that aliens have landed on Earth, he reacts with dismay: "Alistair did not have time for an alien invasion. He was in the middle of a science project." True to form, he soon makes contact with the aliens and not only satisfies their curiosity about earthlings, but also obtains a rare plant that enables him to finish his assignment on time. From the image of Alistair ironing his shoelaces to the sign reading "School closed due to alien invasion," children will revel in the deadpan humor that pervades both the story and the colorful, cartoonlike illustrations. In an age when the predictable abounds, the publication of a droll picture book with a genuine surprise ending is cause enough for celebration in the peanut gallery.
