Illustrated by Charlotte Roberts
Another in the delightful series of books about an inquisitive being from another world. Xalien has found three friends on Earth: Sarah, Adam and Jessica. These children help Xalien learn Earth ways and customs while having fun and adventures.
The kids take Xalien to the zoo and see different animals, Xalien is able to talk with the zoo animals and they understand her. The lions allow her to pet them. Xalien thinks the peanuts are earplugs instead of a treat for the elephants. She also talks about butterflies large enough to ride on. Xalien and the kids have a lot of fun learning about creatures on each planet and the things that are different about them. There are many moments to talk about differences and similarities in the book.
Each book is designed to be read by an adult to children, because there are many points of sharing and learning for the children that only an adult can provide. When Xalien throws a banana peel on the ground and slips on it, this is an opportunity to talk about cause and effect as well as disposing of trash properly.
I love Charlotte’s illustrations, they are bright and cheery. She captures the essence of a story in a wonderful manner.
I found no errors in this book, and considering how delightful and pleasurable the book is it gets 5/5 Stars!
