School Library Journal - 06/01/2020 PreS-K—An alien has crash landed into this title. In the tradition of interactive read-alouds like Hervé Tullet's Press Here comes this follow-up to There's a Monster in Your Book and There's a Dragon in Your Book by British duo Fletcher and Abbott. Following many of the same prompts as in the previous books, readers are asked to blow on a page, jiggle the book, and make loud noises, all to help the poor alien get back into space. Digital illustrations aim to evoke a three-dimensional effect, emulating torn paper and smoke in several of the spreads. The cute, but sticky, big-eyed Alien, is fun to follow, and Monster makes an appearance helping Alien get his spaceship fixed and back in flight. The text uses various fonts and sizes, emphasizing actions for the readers to take, and the cues are clear for when the book must turned upside down, where to focus, and when and how to turn the page. VERDICT Though not original in concept or execution, this title will make for a fun story hour or one-on-one reading.—Danielle Jones, Multnomah County Lib., OR - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
