From the Back Cover
'So now I know. My teacher's an alien. Even worse, he's come to earth to kidnap kids and take them into space! '
At least I'm not alone – I've got Peter Thompson with me. I just don't know if that's comforting or worrying. For all his brains, Peter's never been much good in a crisis. But he's the only help I have and somehow we have to figure out a way to get rid of the alien before he takes off with the whole of our class. To be perfectly honest, I don't even know where to begin.--This text refers to the Preloaded Digital Audio Player edition.

This first person story is told by Susan Simmons, your ordinary sixth grader. She has been looking forward to the final weeks of the school year because her teacher, Ms. Schwartz, is going to have the children stage a play. She is soon shocked to learn that Ms. Schwartz is not coming back; to make matters worse, the new teacher, Mr. Smith, has no interest in staging plays or teaching in his predecessor's unconventional but highly effective (i.e., fun) style. Susan doesn't like Mr. Smith at all, and like many a kid before her eventually finds herself in a bind thanks to a note she wrote in class. In her attempt to get the note back, she discovers that Mr. Smith is actually an alien and that he has come here to take five students back with him to wherever he came from. What's a girl to do? No adult would ever believe her, and most kids would think she was joking.Read more ›
In My Teacher is an Alien, Susan is dismayed to discover that the new substitute teacher is actually an alien who has come here to take five students back with him to wherever he came from. What's a girl to do? She turns to Peter, a smart but unmotivated boy who eats, lives, and breathes science fiction. He doesn't exactly buy her story at first, but together they find enough evidence to convince him that she is telling the truth. Now all they have to do is rescue their original teacher, avoid being carried off into space by Mr. Smith, and somehow prove to even the most skeptical of adults that "we are not alone."
Duncan Dougal, class bully and somewhat questionable ally in the previous adventure, takes center stage in My Teacher Fried My Brain. Here, we see inside his unhappy life, come to understand why he lashes out at people the way he does, and admire his effort to turn over a new leaf in life with the help of an artificially-advanced intelligence.
The kids are now in seventh grade, and Duncan's first day is a rough one; as always, he finds trouble, and this time trouble reaches back and finds him as well. He makes a startling discovery - a discarded human hand.Read more ›
