I received Kevin and the Three-Headed Alien as a winner of the goodreads book giveaway, so I wanted to leave a review with my thoughts on the work. The book is a cute story depicting the struggles we most often face as writers - the unnerving time when we finally choose to let others read our work. The main character, a young boy, faces his fear of putting his work out there and decides to let a friend read his work. He is bolstered by his friend's approval and decides to work together with others to make his work into a screenplay. The story is fun and a great read for kids who are interested in the process of becoming an author. While the writing is a bit dry for young children, I appreciate the efforts made throughout the book to show positive relationships. The characters work well together and are even able to gracefully work out differences in opinion within themselves. I was especially appreciative (as a parent reading this) that the main character's parents caution him in the end about putting his video online (something many children do without thought of later consequences). All in all, this is a cute story good for encouraging kids with a natural knack for writing, creating, drawing, and collaborating.
(Morgan age 11) rates this book 4.5 stars Kevin is an imaginer who writes his dreams in his note book. His friends decided to make a movie about Kevins dreams and finds a three headed alien. They decide to make the movie about outer space and everyone wants a part in it. My favorite part is when they find out about the movie and spread it to there friends but Kevin,the dreamer, doesn't want everyone to know. I would recremend this book to other readers. This book gives kids an open view of the story and is fun to read. 4.5 star
