This strikingly illustrated book features three tiny green aliens, each with a distinctive, expressive look and personality -- and one giant, menacing Big Bad Robot, set against black, starry space. The robot pursues the aliens across the solar system, intent on destroying their homes with his swinging arms, ripping claws, and triple blaster. All that robot and space vehicle action should be a particular hit with boys and space-loving girls. The book also does a remarkable job of portraying the three little aliens' bold quest to find new places to live on other planets after they leave the security of home and their mom on Mercury.
