Grades 2-5.
When Flowkwee goes to planet Earth on a mission, he has to stay disguised - as a small Earthling called Nigel, with only one head and four appendages! But that’s not all: his personal mission is to go to a school every day to collect Earthlings to “improve” in his dad’s Improver machine. Nigel knows he has to act dumb around the Earthlings, so in math class he pretends he only knows his times table up to 2,000,006 x 9, and in literacy class he pretends to read like a newborn Faathing baby. A lot of Earthling life is totally weird to Nigel, but in some ways Earth is even better than planet Faa. Earth is full of cool sounds made up of all different pitches and noises called “music,” and Earthlings get gifts every year on their birthdays, just for being alive! But while Nigel starts to embrace his Earthling self, in the background lurks a coming invasion that his dad keeps talking about. And why are the Threggs so interested in a substance called “spinach”? Get students excited about reading with this inspiring story of what it means to be a kid. Features interesting characters that seek to navigate everyday life with some not-so-ordinary experiences. 192 pages. Copyright 2013.
