Children's Literature
Lily is a young girl with three alien friends. Ploo, Klatu, and Lek are from the planet Loogl and arrived on earth through a Gamma Wormhole that will be closing shortly. The aliens desperately miss their family so Lily and her adult friend Jo-Jo try to arrange for a Loogling spaceship to return to earth and take the aliens back home. After national security foils the spaceship�s attempt to land in the Nevada desert, Jo-Jo contacts her producer friend in Hollywood. The producer agrees to allow the spaceship to land near the studio. He can work it into the script of his hit TV show �Space Kids in La-La Land.� As Lily and her friends tour the show�s set, most people think the aliens are actors in costume for the show. A young starlet, however, suspects the truth and her accusations could prevent the Looglings from successfully departing. Some young readers may not be familiar with this book�s references to Elvis invasions and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but it is still a fun, fast paced story. Several black-and-white illustrations are interspersed throughout the book. This book is the fifth in the �Weird Planet� series. Reviewer: Denise Daley
