The Three Little Aliens and the Big Bad Robot by Margaret McNamara, Mark Fearing

GREEP BOINK MEEP! The three little aliens are happily settling into their new homes when the Big Bad Robot flies in to crack and smack and whack their houses down! A chase across the solar system follows in this out-of-this-world version of the classic Three Little Pigs tale. Margaret McNamara (How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin?) and Mark Fearing (The Book that Eats People) have created a humorous and visually stunning story that kids will adore—and that will introduce them to the planets and the solar system. The endpapers even include a labeled diagram of all the planets.

I like robots but not aliens

My son loves robots and aliens, so this is right up his alley. I liked the mini-science lesson - the planets are relatively accurately portrayed. Lots of humor and wisdom in a fun package.

Our son loves the three little pigs story so when we stumbled across this great book based on the classic, it drew our attention. This story includes the requirements of three children sent from home to make their own way in the world, a big bully, and a lesson to do a job right - but along the way we get descriptions of our solar system (Earth is too crowded, Saturn has dust rings)and a plucky smart hero (who happens to wear glasses). A great retelling of the classic!
