What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

It’s a book within a book! Wonderfully wacky as ever, Colin McNaughton sets off in search of strange and silly aliens.

When an author gets his book in the mail, he’s nervous to have his family read it. And no wonder! It stars a guy who takes off in a rocket ship and meets a ghastly array of alien creatures — some smelly, some with eyes in their belly — and one lovely alien who steals his heart. Madcap rhymes and zany illustrations will tickle kids’ funny bones, while a book within a book drives home a final twist.
