Are there really aliens attacking Earth, or are Art and his friends overreacting?
I liked this funny little book about Art and his hilarious friends. The narrative is entertaining, and the plot is silly with lots of quirky details. I especially liked the factoids about space travel and the solar system that are inserted at the end of each chapter.
The black and white illustrations add another playful dimension to the story as we get to know each character through the artwork.
I love how the characters are not afraid to use their imaginations and come up with crazy ideas. I also found the sibling relationships very realistic and engaging.
This would be a great chapter book for young readers, or a fun book to read aloud with children.
