The ultimate space fantasy: having an alien for a friend! This book will take your child out of this world, and then bring them back in for a hug!

— Jamie


"One day, you'll be looking out your window when something wonderful comes your way . . . and you will want to keep him."

Tammi Sauer's beautiful story about a baby alien, the little boy who wants to keep him, and the power of friendship and family is now in board

When a little boy meets a stranded alien child, the two instantly strike up a fabulous friendship. But at bedtime, the alien suddenly grows very sad. Can the boy figure out what his new buddy needs most of all? This funny, heartwarming story proves that friends and family are the most important things in the universe . . . no matter who you are.
