Okay, so this is the novelization of the movie of the same name. This is a delightful spoof of all those science fiction films about alien invaders. A tounge in cheek goof on the pulps that came out back in the 50s and 60s that kids loved to read in secret under the covers with a flashlight, you know, the stories that many parents liked to call trash. Of course, the forbidden fruit is often the most sweet and so is this book. The film was inspired by a set of trading cards of the same name which were, in turn, inspired by the bug eyed monster stories from days of yore and by H. G. Wells' novel War of The Worlds. Don't expect anything too serious here unless it's a serious laugh you're looking for. It's an enjoyable, easy read.
