Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 06/01/2014 Gr 1–3—The silly sci-fi series with reluctant reader appeal is back for a fourth installment. This time, Zack is stuck at home with a broken arm and an annoying little brother. As in the previous books, instructions for a hands-on science experiment are included. - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.

Booklist - 07/01/2014 Zack McGee is like many kids: klutzy and curious, with an annoying little brother. But then there’s Amp, the tiny blue alien who lives in his bedroom. This fourth Alien in My Pocket title once again combines engaging character interactions, comical situations, and trial and error, mixing the right amount of silliness with basic science along the way. A closing experiment reinforces the science facts. A great choice for linking across the curriculum, this title is filled with wry one-liners (“as likely as catching a one-eyed unicorn that burps rainbows”) that will keep kids laughing and looking forward to the next installment. - Copyright 2014 Booklist.
