Do you have a next-door neighbor that thinks cartoons are reality? Well Russell does. He has three actually, and trust me it's not pretty. As you read Neighbor From Outer Space, by Francess Lantz, you will learn about Russell's life and how he saves the planet X-10 with the help of planet x-6 from the 10-foot barbarians.
Francess Lantz has written lots of children's books, such as
The Rocky Girl series, Stepsister From Planet Weird, and some of the American Girl books. There are many good details in her books, such as when she describes a character, and when she describes something else, such as how someone looks, talks, and feels. You will have good visuals when you read this book. A very good thing to do is to have predictions in this book to see if your predictions were right or wrong.
There are also some weak parts in this book. One of the weak points was the beginning of the book. But there weren't just weak parts in this book; there were also some strong points too. One of the strong points was on chapter 7. If you read it then you will find out why. This book will teach you not to be afraid or shy to people. The genre of this book is science fiction. If you choose to read this book you will have fun reading it.
