I received this ARC from the publisher.  This in no way influences my review.

At first I was not real sure about this book.  The more I read, and the more I checked out the websites listed throughout the story the more I liked it.  This in my opinion is a great series by great authors.  I believe this would also make a great cartoon on television.

Michael K. is starting his first day in fifth grade.  His first day is not going so well.  He has been put at a table with the two weirdest kids in the class, Bob and Jennifer.  They claim they are aliens and have come to Earth to turn people into Spaceheadz.  Throughout the book they are being chased by an alien agent.  Michael is trying to convince others that these kids are not human.  They spout commercials right and left.  I laughed so hard.  This is definitely a great creative work.   The book is full of web addresses that work.  Yes, I tried them out.  It is super fun. I am thrilled to put it on my shelves at school and share it with my students.  I look forward to many more books in this series.
