Spaceheadz by Jon Sciezka and Francesco Sedita

Michael K. found his first day in his new school even worse than he anticipated. He found himself adopted by three space aliens, the leader in the body of a hamster.
This book seems like it worked too diligently to be cool. The authors have a wealth of credentials and I expected to like it, I didn’t. The premise is fine but the book is bizarrely incoherent. Although that may be ok with the middle school kids this book is targeting. Aliens who take our commercials literally should have been more entertaining. I suspect this will be a hit with the marketing that is planned. I’m going to pass it on to my in-house middle school kid and see what he thinks.
