    3. Giles is insecure, mainly due to his smart older brother and cute little sister. While he is hanging out in the woods near his family's summer retreat, he meets an alien real estate agent who is trying to sell Earth to King Mooby, since the residents of Earth have violated their lease and are going to all be shipped out to Desoleen.

    4. It's hard to find good scifi for middle grade readers but this book fills the bill. I think we should consider this book for BOB; it's more humorous than Cosmic but I think the students who liked that last year will enjoy this book.Giles is the middle child in his family, eclipsed by his genius-level older brother and his violin-playing prodigy little sister. His specialty seems to be getting things messed up. When he finds that an alien realtor is about to sell Earth because humans have failed [...]

    5. Fans of the absurd, rejoice! In the style of Daniel Pinkwater and Brandon Sanderson, this book is both a charming underdog story and a laugh-out-loud piece of utter ridiculosity. It felt a bit slow and simple at the beginning, but quickly won me over. Favorite quotes:"I dug into my pocket and gave him half a kleenex. A shrunken head doesn't need a whole kleenex. You're wasting paper and that's environmentally irresponsible.""I wondered how many mature thoughts you had to have each day in order t [...]

Giles becomes the lease holder and therefore must meet the demands of the high court. With only the help of three other children he must clean up Manhattan In 24 hours. Luckily his alien lawyer has a friend with gadgets that can help.Science fiction, humour11 - 14 yearsExcellent

    7. I think it was a good book. It would be the perfect book for someone who likes comedy. While reading this book I was entertained and read about half of the book in 1 day. This is a book that won't get old no matter how many times you read it. I think this book is great mainly because it has a great plot about aliens with strange characters.

    8. Hilarious. Laugh out loud funny. The Eco-message is powerful but not preachy, featuring robots that can turn paper back into trees. My granddaughter couldn't put it down. Highly recommended for elementary school kids, anyone who likes to laugh and all those who care about the planet!

    9. Giles hates being the middle child because he feels so insignificant. Those feelings change when the fate of the planet is up to him!

    10. I read about 8 chapters of the book and I still didn't feel like reading it. Maybe I'll try it again later.

    11. DNF Got almost halfway through. Can't face any more. Don't recommend this one at all. Haven't gotten any kid feedback on it.
