Julian Rodriguez Book Review

Kidzworld reviews Alexander Stadlers 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!

    On a "normal" person, Polygraphs have a 70%-90% success rate. Now, the problem is that a lot of people aren't "normal". Some people are naturally anxious or have an anxiety disorder, which can mess up the results. Obese people often tend to sweat more, which will give the sensors bad readings.  So, is it a good tool for finding the truth? In certain circumstances, yes. Is it enough to convict someone of a crime? No.  ^^This There are so many variables, it's hard to make sure polygraphs are working to model standards.

    wow this topic is rarely spoken, thanks for sharing it!! [s:p/zxl] 8) 8) Thank you for reading! I think as days go by it gets more and more talked about, but I don't think there can ever be enough said, especially about positive strategies. It seems like we tend to dwell on the worst and not the solution sometimes. Not to mention I don't think there's anything inherently bad about these things.

    Ok so some things about my depression are like i found out i had it when i was 10. I might of had it before then but Idk. But like is a good thing i joined kw cause that's how my friend on here like figured out that i have depression and basically made me tell my mom and dad. And like also i kinda wanted to die and stuff and then later i kinda wanted to kill my self. And hurt my self. I kinda did a little bit but like not that much. And so like i had to do this weird therapy that didn't work. And then it kept getting worse and stuff and then like i went to the doctor and got some medicine but like they didn't give me any for almost a year probably until i was closer to 12. But the first one they tried made me like wake up sometimes and basically be really anxious like freaking out so much that i thought i might hurt myself or kinda other people or do things like run away. But it kinda helped the depression during the day and helped me to sleep sometimes better but like also i stopped wanting to do anything. So then i got a different one but it made me dizzy as soon as i tried it basically and so like after 3 days maybe then I spotted. But then i had to wait for them to get out of my system. After that i starred like regular therapy where you talk to the therapist. Like people told me it was bad so i really didn't want to go for a long time, but i went and it was kind of fun i guess like i could say anything and he wouldn't like be mad about me saying it or anything like he didn't judge and stuff. So i did that for a while like 2 or 3 months and i was feeling a lot better from that and some off the things we did. But like since my dad got a new job it has different insurance so i have to switch but we're just waiting to see like if i need to right now Thank you so much for sharing? You're really brave to talk about that, and I know that sharing your story is going to help somebody else. Thank you. :)
