Spaceheadz Book Review

Aug 28, 2010

Pick up a copy of SPHDZ Book #1, the first in a new series, SPACEHEADZ, by Jon Scieszka (made extra-strength by Francesco Sedita and illustrated by Shane Prigmore), and you can instantly tell this isn’t your ordinary, run-of-the-mill alien book. Nope, it’s much, much weirder than that!


Spacey Story

SPACEHEADZ tells the tale of Michael K., a Grade 5 guy who's starting at a new school. When he tries to make friends, he ends up hanging out with two very odd kids who say they're aliens. Bob and Jennifer (and a hamster) decide to recruit Michael to help them convince over 3,140,001 kids to be SPHDZ. If he doesn't agree to help, the aliens threaten to turn off the whole world!


While Michael is trying to deal with the aliens, fit in at school, get his parents to understand him and, of course, save the world, Agent Umber shows up with a plan to catch some extraterrestrials in order to prove himself in his job. He provides some great comic relief in this story, because he is just an accident waiting to happen.


Web Extras

The SPACEHEADZ series isn't just books - it's also got a bunch of bonus virtual tie-ins that can help you get way more fun out of your reading experience!

  • At www.sphdz.com, you can sign up to be a SPHDZ and help stop the Earth from being turned off. You'll even be assigned your very own "secret agent"-type name!
  • At www.antialienagency.com, you can see what the government is doing to protect the Earth from the alien menace. This site actually does look like an official government site.
  • At www.mrshalleyscomets.com, you can see Michael K.'s fifth-grade class website. This one is pretty cute too and so looks like a teacher's website with pictures of artwork and announcements.
