In this story, a space ship crashes through a boy's window and falls into his room.
The boy's name in Rod. The aliens tell him that their ship is broken and that they
need to stay with him for a while. Then one day, when Rod came home from
school the aliens told him that a boy in his school named Billy Becker is really an
alien criminal from outer space! The aliens said that they have been searching for
him for a long time but never caught him. Rod reacts by yelling, "I'm going to get
him!" In the ending there is a surprise! The illustrations are very good. The illustrator
put a lot of detail into them. The only thing I didn't like about the pictures is that they
were black and white.
I like this book a lot because I like books about aliens. I would recommend this
book to others because it is very interesting when the ship goes through the
window and other things. I don't think girls would want to read this book because I
don't think that girls would want to read about aliens.
