Ahhh-flying-saucer-shooting-star-CHOO! Laughter is the best medicine when you’re a little alien feeling under the weather.
Little Alien is sick. And sick is extra-terrestrial bad when you have two scratchy throats, five ears that hurt, and three runny noses. Splatch! Sputter! Spurt! Luckily Mama and Daddy Alien have an arsenal of lunar decongestants and meteor showers on hand to make him feel a little better (not to mention a Milky Way milkshake to help the medicine go down). Even so, the family’s alien pooch, Mars Rover, can’t stand to see his little buddy feeling out of sorts. Can a loyal pup’s funny tricks finally coax a smile?

It is that time of year that folks crowd doctor's offices, pharmacy lines for prescriptions grow lengthy, OTC products fly off the shelves, and folks huddle under wraps as they recover from colds, sniffles, flu and other ailments. And it is a time when Moms and Dads, Grannies and Aunties read to the sick and infirm little ones in their midst. And there is a new book that fills the bill hilariously taking a shot at the sick and infirm that might be "out there." Think spacey, think little aliens, think what it might be "out there" if a Little Alien got sick like you get sick....... (love the idea of a sick kid book) Well, Little Alien is different from you. He's got two throats. Double trouble! Ear ache? Wow! He's got five that hurt. Can you even imagine his troubles? We have lots to engage the little sick kid to whom this book is being read while he is abed. A dog - Mars Rover - who is super funny. And while Rover is a frequently bestowed name for doggies, a Mars Rover hints of space exploration and a machine/vehicle that will roam Mars. Cure for getting rid of the sniffles? Why not a milkshake courtesy of the Milky Way. Again a bit of space discovery as discussion of the Milky Way takes place betwixt sick kid and loving reader. Cures like "shooting stars" ear drops, lunar decongestants (you won't believe this one), and the curative "meteor shower." But the discovery that a bit of fun and distraction is sometimes the best cure is the best there is. A fun read and a super "sick kid" book.
