Book Description

18 Mar 2005
A curious child compares garden creatures to what he knows of space
invaders. What are they!? Alien invaders? Antennas? Shiny armor and helmets?
Are these small creatures Earth dwellers or something 'out of this world'?

TV and movies give the child the impression that aliens look just like what
he sees in his own garden. In the garden, helmeted bugs live among the giant
onions. Ant colonies scurry in an underworld of stolen treasure that include
a diamond ring, sugar cubes, jacks and various other human loot. Swarms of
bugs seem to glow in the moonlight and insects carrying off pickles, cheese
and other goodies invade a picnic. The child invents ways to make friends
with them (just in case they are aliens!) such as putting on a show
featuring what might be their favorite flowers and sharing his popcorn at TV

Creepy crawlers in wacky colored pencil illustrations cast an iridescent
glow in this lively tale. Bugs and creepy crawlers abound in far-out
illustrations. Kids will love knowing what the little boy doesn't know and
enjoy the insect antics along the way.

Drawn on animation paper (used for wide-angle panning shots) acquired after
the 1994 California earthquake, many of the soft tones are achieved through
the use of PrismacolorR pencils in shades of Indigo blue to obtain a broad
range of hues and tones.

Full text translation in both English and Spanish. Key word bilingual
(English/Spanish) vocabulary.

About the Author

Lynn Huggins - Cooper loves bugs! Growing up in Sussex, England, her
childhood was spent on 'small game safaris' in the garden or at the beach.
When she was a teacher, Lynn's classroom was an Aladdin's cave of bug tanks,
tadpole bowls, critter cages and vivariums. Now Lynn loves to bug hunt with
her own children on their small farm in County Durham, England, where she
gardens organically. She spends her spare time building ponds and wildlife
gardens for her family and local schools, or looking after her larger pets
and 'writing advisors': hens, doves, guinea pigs, six lazy cats, two silly
sheepdogs; Gracie and Sweetpea the goats, Khola the pony and her foal... But
Lynn's favorite thing to do in the garden is to lie in the grass watching
the insect world march by.

A Kid's Review
I purchased this book because I wanted something mildly simple in Spanish to read. The pictures are large, but there is very little text. The author's biography was longer than the book; less than a sentence a page. I have found better books made of cardboard in gas stations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging and Irresistible! 4 July 2005

Invaders have landed, although not where you may think! These little creatures camouflaged by shiny suits and robot like legs has setup camp in your backyard!

Alien Invaders/Invasores Extraterrestres is a wonderful teaching tool for children that parents, as well as teachers will enjoy using- not just because it is written in both English and Spanish, but also because it reveals the world of insects in their natural habitats.

Graphics are superb and sure to entertain kids of all ages!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun creative thinking for children 31 Mar 2005
By Harold McFarland - Published on Amazon.com
Written in both English and Spanish, Alien Invaders is a look at the world of insects. If there are aliens on the earth then perhaps they are insects with their bizarre appearance and habits. This is a look through a young child's eyes at how insects could be viewed as aliens. I really like the books of this series that have complete English and Spanish texts so a child can build their vocabulary in another language easily. Alien Invaders is a highly recommended children's book with wonderful illustrations and a real pleasure to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creative, bilingual and extremely well illustrated children's book! 19 Sep 2006
By Cady Hayden - Published on Amazon.com
Informative book about the bugs that rule/live around us. This bilingual book has basic english sentences that are translated into spanish on the same page. It was fun to try to pronounce some of the words I was trying to learn in spanish. Bonnie Leick, illustrator, is absolutely amazingly talented. Her drawings are all dark but the color she uses brings out the importance of certain items and adds mystery to the alien bugs that live around us every day. There is also a vocabulary list on the last page of singular/plural nouns in english and spanish which makes this entire book educational in a fun and creative way.
