Kidzworld review's Alexander Stadler's book Julian Rodriguez.

Author: Alexander Stadler


Julian Rodriguez is not your average eight-year-old. For starters he is First Officer of the Federation on a secret assignment to earth! We've got the review!

One Angry Alien

Talk about someone who hates their job! Julian Rodriguez is a disgruntled alien who can't stand being on earth. He is annoyed with the habits of humans, their culture and just about everything else! For eight years he has served as a spy for the Mothership. He regularly reports to the Mothership and complains about his classmates, teachers and even the lunchroom food! Not only do his human parents grow tired of Julian's antics but so does the Mothership, who threatens to cut the mission short. Will Julian change his attitude and learn to love his mission?


Bottom Line

Julian Rodriguez is a fun read. While we hope that nobody is as angry as Julian is, a lot of us can relate to some of the issues he has. After all, who likes chores and school work? Author Alexander Stadler does a good job with the illustrations. The cool graphics give this a little bit of a comic book feel. This book is also very funny. No doubt you'll be laughing all the way through this one!
