More About the Author

Bruce Coville was born in Syracuse, New York, in 1950. His family lived in farm territory, about twenty miles north of Syracuse. Bruce grew up around the corner from his grandparents' dairy farm, where he spent a great deal of time as a child, dodging cows and chores to the best of his ability. As a young reader he loved Mary Poppins and Dr. Dolittle, and still has fond memories of rising ahead of the rest of his family so he could huddle in a chair and read THE VOYAGES OF DR. DOLITTLE. He also read lots of things that people consider junk (Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, Tom Swift, and zillions of comic books). His only real regret is the time he spent watching television, when he could have been reading instead. (A mind is a terrible thing to waste!)

His first book, THE FOOLISH GIANT, was published in 1978. It was illustrated by his wife, Katherine, whom he had married in 1969. This was followed in 1979 by SARAH'S UNICORN, also illustrated by Katherine. After a long period of working separately, the Covilles began collaborating again with SPACE BRAT and GOBLINS IN THE CASTLE, both published in 1992.

Before getting published Bruce earned his living as a toymaker, a gravedigger, a cookware salesman, an assembly line worker, and finally as an elementary school teacher (second and fourth grades). He left teaching in 1981 to devote himself to becoming a full time writer - though it took another five years to achieve that goal!)

Bruce has published over 100 books, which have appeared in over a dozen countries around the world and sold more than sixteen million copies. Among his most popular titles are MY TEACHER IS AN ALIEN, INTO THE LAND OF THE UNICORNS, and THE MONSTER'S RING. In 2001 he founded Full Cast Audio, an audiobook company dedicated to creating unabridged, full cast recordings of the best in children's and young adult literature.

Format: Paperback
Space brat 2 was much better then the first with more action, more comedy, and the biggest space brat tantrum yet! In this book Blork accidentally makes a clone of himself named Krolb who does the opposite of what Blork says or does. Now Krolb stole a shrink-ray and wants to shrink the planet splat. What can space brat do now...read and see! I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes hilarous science fiction books.

Format: Paperback
Space Brat 2: Blorks Evil Twin is written by Bruce Coville. It is about an alien from the planet Splat. In the first book Blork had lots of tantrums, but then he went on a trip where he learned to control his temper. There are lots of other weird names in the book. One day, the class goes to the museum where they see some inventions. Something bad happens there, but if I tell it would give the story away. I recommend this book to people who like interesting books. I would not read this book before the first book. There are more after this book , so I would read those too. I would also recommend other Bruce Covill books. By:Benjamin Goodman

This is my 2nd favorite of this series. (Although I haven't read more than these 4.) My classes always loved these books. The book itself was in pretty good shape. Just glad I found this copy.

I used this book with reluctant teen readers, believe it or not, and they still got a kick out of it. We had already read Space Brat, and this is its first sequel. The boys enjoyed that Blork was still wrestling with his inner (now outwardly manifested naughty doppelgänger) urges to rage out of control and play what he thinks are harmless pranks. He sees how painful his bratty behavior has been for others. The kids liked being able to read, and they also liked the issues this little alien had to deal with. We discussed how we all have good and evil within us, and had some valuable talks because of this little book.

I thought of this book a couple minutes ago and I said to myself, this book was okay, but i think it was a little boring at parts. mainly because Blork didn't get to go into space at all. he was on Splat the whole time.
