      If you grew up watching classic monster movies from the 1950's & 1960's, you will love this series. This book is a take on the clasic The Day the Earth Stood Still. Felix the cat came from the spaceship, taller than the tallest human. He tells the earthlings that they can rid them of the mice in exchange for milk. Then at night they take their ray guns and shrink all the cows down and steal them aboard their ship. Its a race for the children to save the day. Very cute and I can't wait to rea [...]

      This is the latest installment of the Dr. Roach's Monstrous Stories. Of the four in this non-related series, this is probably my least favorite. It felt thin with little to no plot and none of the interesting and funny bits of the last three. Needless to say, Aidan seemed to enjoy it and he loves these groups of books. They are clever and perfectly sized for the early independent readers in grades 1 -3.

      This one was pretty cute and more creative/original. Better vocabulary and language than the first (zombie goldfish). Fun onomatopoeia. The huge aliens are cats and hack up a hairball. (view spoiler)[Cows are disappearing. Why? The cats are shrinking them to take back to the home planet, so they have an unlimited supply of milk. The humans distract them by creating a gigantic yarnball. (hide spoiler)]

      SCI FI->+ something this book does that I haven't seen very much of is that the book begins with a brief summary of what happens in the story (provides context), I love how Dr. Roach "gives" the reader an assignment like they're a spy, quick moving plot, humorous- predictable ending, mice have pretty much nothing to do with it

      I read this book to one of my 7 year old sons this evening. Cute, fun story that held his attention well. He enjoyed it. He was especially entertained by the fact that it had the word "poo" in it once. yep, he's a typical boy.

      6-year-old read this one to me. Not too bad. Spoiler: the mice stood still because they were petrified by the alien cats, who could only be scared of by a plot involving the world's largest ball of yarn. :-)

      Fast read. Suitable for 2-3 graders. Lots of new vocabulary for instruction.

      A cute story about visiting cat aliens bent on stealing all the cows in a farming town. Plucky Jilly figures out their devious plan and thwarts them! Cow pies!Funny and fun illustrations.

      More fun silliness for those who are happy with the Captain Underpants / Bad Kitty types of entertainment.
