This one alien changes personality from aggressive to diplomatic, based on which translator module he has in, but he’s still saying the same crazy stuff regardless of which module is stuck in his noggin. Mar 06, Denise Chojnacki rated it liked it Shelves: While my family did enjoy listening to the book and it held our interest, it is very much geared to a young audience. There’s constant action and every character is totally absurd. It is definitely writing for kids.

Rod Albright is a great character and th I’m not sure why or how my mother picked this book up we were living in South America at the timebut I do remember clearly it was the second chapter book we read together, brue in subsequent years when my parents despaired over my science fiction obsession, I tried once or twice to remind them that the hook was set deep and early by reading several pages of this book together each morning before the school bus came, when I was a brand-new kindergartner.
