Summary

A six-eyed teenage alien’s future in Hollywood—and on Earth—is at risk when a visitor from his home planet arrives in this humorous adventure. 
 
After escaping his oppressive red dwarf planet and landing a role on a popular Hollywood sitcom, Buddy Burger seems destined for high-flying success. His legions of fans love his six eyes, his suction cup feet, and even his excessive need for avocados. It seems nothing can stop his rise to super-stardom—until the arrival of Citizen Cruel, a shape-shifting Squadron member sent from Buddy’s home planet to bring him back by any means necessary. Will Buddy conquer this clever and unpredictable enemy? How long can he continue to keep his alien identity secret from his friends and fans? Is there enough guacamole on Earth to sustain him? And chips to go with it? 
 
Praise for Alien Superstar 
 
“Action, suspense, and big laughs!” —Jeff Kinney, author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series 
 
“Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver keep us laughing while slipping in a lesson for kids—accept everyone as they are, even if they have suction cups for feet. . . . A super fun read for middle grades on up.” —Jennifer Garner 
 
“A funny interstellar adventure.” —SLJ Review 
 
"Winkler and Oliver bring their sharply honed sense of comedy and extensive experience in the television industry to Buddy’s antics on the set. . . . This results in an endearingly strange protagonist that will resonate with any kid who has felt like an outsider. A sense of humor and empathy are required for this zany adventure.” —Booklist

    All Kevin wants is to be like any other high school student and learn how to drive and hang out with his friends. But when your parents run a funeral home, it’s tough to have a normal life. And when you’re a Mormon living in the South, well, that just about triples your weirdness quotient. Especially when an elderly woman from church drafts you into the Granite Girls, a group that records the names on all the tombstones in Armadillo, Arkansas. Try explaining that to the local sheriff who catches you in a graveyard at 6:30 in the morning.   One not-so-weird thing about Kevin’s family is the love they have for Marcy—a young African-American woman who’s like the sister Kevin never had. Just as the family prepares to help Marcy renovate the house across the road with money left to her by her late father, a stranger shows up at the Paramount Funeral Home. It’s Ruby, Marcy’s mother, whom she hasn’t seen in twelve years. Soon after Ruby’s arrival, things begin to disappear—and Ruby makes sure Kevin takes the blame. As her threats become more personal, Kevin must find a way to expose Ruby and to convince others of the truth, not only for Marcy’s sake, but to save his own reputation.

    This poem describes a battle with a fearsome beast called “The Jabberwock” and is considered to be one of the greatest nonsense poems written in the English language. The poem is included in Lewis Carroll’s 1871 novel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. In an early scene in that novel, Alice discovers a book that is written backwards. Realizing that she’s in the inverted “looking-glass land,” she holds the book up to a mirror and is able to read the poem “Jabberwocky,” but she finds it to be just as nonsensical and perplexing as the world around her.
