Award winning, multi-volume children’s author, Michelle Path introduces us to the first in a series, “Xalien the Purple Alien”:
Xalien the Purple Alien is written in a fun, humorous style suitable for young children to enjoy. It would make an entertaining story for parents to read to their children, or for children with some early reading skills to read to their parents! The story of Xalien the purple alien is about an alien who crashes to earth and finds herself befriended by three children; Jessica, Adam and Sarah. Whilst on Earth, Xalien learns all about planet Earth and the all the strange habits Humans have; often resulting in funny and unusual situations as she tries her hardest to fit in. Along the way, Xalien teaches the three children, about life on her own Planet. The aim of the story is for children to develop a love for reading by entertaining them with the fun and bizarre adventures Xalien finds herself on. Teemed with bright, colourful illustrations by Charlotte Roberts, the book is sure to draw in young readers eager to learn more about Xalien and her antics.
This is a wonderful story accompanied by delightful illustrations. I think the collaboration of Michelle and Charlotte is brilliant. The pictures are large and easy to grasp, yet rich in detail to engage all ages.
I asked my seven-year-old granddaughter to read the story to me, I knew some of the words might challenge her, she sounded many of them out and I explained some of them to her. She said she liked the story a lot.
I think children of all ages will enjoy this story when read to them, it is a marvelous exercise in accepting differences in others. I am glad there are several books in the series. I rate this 4.5/5 stars!
