Book Description

Ten-year-old Rob thought he knew all there was to know about his parents, but suddenly things have changed. Why do Mom and Dad keep warning him not to ask too many questions? Could aliens from another world really have replaced his parents? And what’s happened to Snappy, the family dog? Soon Rob’s writing down all the latest weird developments in a notebook entitled REASONS WHY MY PARENTS ARE ALIENS FROM OUTER SPACE. Can he figure it out before it’s too late? It’s another eerily fun thriller from the inventive mind of R.L. Stine.

Product Description

About the Author

R.L. (Robert Lawrence) Stine is one of the best-selling children's authors in history. His Goosebumps series, along with such series as Fear Street, The Nightmare Room, Rotten School, and Mostly Ghostly have sold nearly 400 million books in this country alone. And they are translated into 32 languages.

The Goosebumps TV series was the top-rated kids’ series for three years in a row. R.L.’s TV movies, including The Haunting Hour: Don’t Think About It and Mostly Ghostly, are perennial Halloween favorites. And his scary TV series, R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour, is in its second season on The Hub network.

R.L. continues to turn out Goosebumps books, published by Scholastic. In addition, his first horror novel for adults in many years, titled Red Rain, will be published by Touchstone books in October, 2012.

R.L. says that he enjoys his job of “scaring kids.” But the biggest thrill for him is turning kids on to reading.

R.L. lives in New York City with his wife, Jane, an editor and publisher, and King Charles Spaniel, Minnie. His son, Matthew, is a sound designer and music producer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Alien mom 19 July 2013
By Delaney - Published on
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My son is 11 with the attention span of a flea and dyslexia, it's summer, and getting him to read in the summer is as easy as having a snowball fight in summer. I have dug up every book I could think of, but these shorter Stine min mysteries really appeal to him. He can finish one in a day, his mom stops nagging him, the stories are fun and entertaining, and we all win.

I read this one too, and because I am that weird mom, I started behaving like the alien mom. You know to see if he was reading the book.........he was. It made for a really fun day.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun story, but a little scary for younger kids 20 Nov. 2012
By ACeeKayWa - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my two grandsons at Halloween. They are 10 and 7, voracious readers and not alarmed by "scary" movies or books usually. The 10 year old was fine with it, although the reading level was below his, the main character was close to his age and he thought the story was hilarious. The reading level was perfect for the 7 year old (and he loved the story), but it terrified him and he had several nights of bad dreams before finally agreeing to stop readng it. I'd suggest previewing the book before giving it to your child.

For most kids, this will be a huge hit. Doesn't every kid at some point think their parents must be aliens?

You should like this book because I love aliens! I have saw one on TV. They are very cool. This was my 2nd favorite book and I also like that it was free. Goosebumps books are my favorite books.I left my curse of the mommy's tomb book at school so when I go back to school I will read it and take it home to finish.this was written by an 8 yr old boy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short story, but still great. 19 July 2013
By Detra Fitch - Published on
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It is supposed to be a typical Saturday morning for ten-year-old Rob Herbert. Yet from the moment he opens his eyes things seem odd. His parents no longer act the same either. His mom suddenly hates tea and loves cornflakes. His dad suddenly loves poached eggs and can build shelves. Snappy, his dog, has vanished. Can it be that Rob's parents have been replaced by aliens from another world? But if so, why?

**** FOUR STARS! This chapter book is short, only forty-four pages, but the entire thing is one creepy mystery. Author R.L. Stine has long been well known for writing stories that give children the shivers. This one is no exception. The writing style is simple and easy to read. There are no big words to confuse a kid or to distract the reader from the tale. On a personal note, I had my own idea of what was going on...I was wrong. ****

3.0 out of 5 stars R.L. STINE scary horror for kids. What kid doesn't think at some time is his parents weird? Rob's parents aliens? 5 Oct. 2013
By Enchanted In Dixie - Published on
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a true to RL Stein scary story for kids. It does start our scary and as such use caution with the sensitive kids. Some 8 year olds can handle it, while my 13 year refused reading it - afraid it would cause nightmares. My 15 year old enjoyed it even though it is a lower reading level. You know your kids so use caution.

That being said it was a short book great for a Halloween read on bedtime scary fest or pajama party read. Just when you think you know what is happening it ends in a twist.

3 stars We did wonder why cover shows aliens when there is never any actual alien sightings in the story.
