Feeling alien is something we all go through, whether we are starting at a new school or a new job, living in a new area, or even experiencing a different culture if we want to view it on a deeper level. So an awesome idea to relate this to kids is to put a literal alien in the situation -- who feels more out of place than that? The ways in which the main character experiences his differences from the people around him happen with language and social cues in a way that reminded me a lot of people I've worked with who have ASD. He is very literal, and this gets him into some shenanigans that are educational for those who may have experienced a similar thing in real life. Plus, he's just adorable. "Hot spaghetti!" must be the best variation of "Oh, shoot!" I've ever heard.
The book is full of excellent role models and learning opportunities for any kid, but I would highly recommend it for those that struggle to navigate social experiences. This story is an excellent way to show them that they are not alone!
If you haven't read the author's other series - The Adventures of Zelda - you should. Otte intertwined references in this book to that series (Peaches, pug, etc) that my son picked up on. He chuckled everytime he caught the reference.
Highly recommend - quick and fun read for all!
My daughter will post her review below, but let me share just how much my daughter enjoyed it. The whole time she was reading it (and she read it in one day), she was telling me about what was happening, laughing at the funny parts, and gasping when something bad happened. She really got into it. Here's her review…
I loved this book. I would give it a million stars if I could. Charlie's catch phrases (like "hot spaghetti" or "oh pug") were awesome! They were hilarious. I thought the story was very exciting. Sometimes I had to close the book and take a breath. The writing was good. I could see the characters in my head, and I never got confused about what was happening. I'm going to share this book with my friends. Thanks so much for sending me this book. I can't wait to more from Kristen! I hope there will be more Alien Kid books.
Alien Kid was the greatest book I've read since Harry Potter. I loved the idea of what would happen if aliens really did exist. I hope Ms. Otte writes more about Charlie's adventures. You should buy this book for your kids. They will love it.
PS--If they like dogs, you should check out her Zelda and Pug series, too.
