Space Brat

Bruce Coville, Author, Patricia MacDonald, Editor, Katherine Coville, Illustrator Aladdin Paperbacks $6.99 (84p) ISBN 978-0-671-74567-7
Far away on the planet Splat lives a boy named Blork whose temper tantrums are nothing short of galactic in their scope. That is, until Blork discovers that tantrums do not ensure that he will always get his way and that, in fact, tantrums are a truly ugly sight. Because the story is set in a foreign time and place, readers can easily perceive his obnoxious, offensive behavior and laugh at his misfortunes. The distance between Blork and young readers will help them to confront their own misbehavior while preserving their dignity and confidence. As in the author's bestselling My Teacher Is an Alien , honest, straightforward language blends with a keen sense of humor. An upbeat fantasy which will amuse children of all temperaments. Ages 7-11.
