Nine-year-old Morgan is fascinated with aliens. He lives in the Pacific Northwest, land of the sasquatch, and naturally is fascinated with those as well. When he meets new kid Lewis, whose parents own a motel named the Stay On Inn, the adventures begin with slingshots, underpants, annoying older sisters, and neighbors dressed up in bear suits.

Alien Encounter by Charise Mericle Harper is a hilarious, zany alien adventure story full of funny illustrations all throughout.

"Young fans of the Magic Tree House mysteries will warm to Morgan and Lewis and eagerly await the next installment of their antics." -- Booklist

"It's all funny and sweet and never too clever." -- The Horn Book

This is like a boys' version of Just Grace. Morgan and Lewis meet in the woods when Lewis's underwear catches on a branch and traps him in a tree. Morgan climbs up to help him and their shared experiences begin. There are some unexpected twists and turns to the story that make it a page turner. Charise Mericle Harper has a gift for getting us inside the heads of nine-year-olds. I will be recommending this series to the kids that come into our library, particularly boys who have not yet fallen in love with reading.
