K-Gr 3-- One evening a four-armed, three-eyed space man appears at the door of a bored Mr. Munday. As Fingle, the visitor, is also bored with his life as an astronaut, they decide to swap places for a while. Neither Munday's ``adventures'' in outer space, nor Fingle's as an earthling mailman are engaging, let alone entertaining. The dialogue ranges from fast-moving and colloquial to a rather stilted use of the future tense and is totally devoid of character differentiation. Illustrations are splashy, almost slapdash, cartoons that perfectly capture the ho-hum humor of the text. For originality, child appeal, and a satisfying picture book, this book cannot begin to compare with Sadler's Alistair in Outer Space (Prentice-Hall, 1984) , cleverly illustrated by Roger Bollen.-- John Philbrook, San Francisco Public Library
