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.

Alright, I need to vent about something. In this one role-play called Logan: The Beast Unleashed, I have this one character named Aiden who is a former mercenary assassin. (I know, pretty dark. But just hear me out here.) Aiden went to try and convince Logan to come back, and pretty much failed. Going to Logan, Aiden killed 5 thugs that he came across that were going to do something pretty bad if he didn't do something first. At the middle of the time he had there, he killed a guy that was going to inform people about him which would be awful. A month later, Aiden received a letter. The day after, a guy entered the side street that Aiden lived in, giving Aiden the right to kill him. Then the leader said, "Can you please tone it down with Aiden's killing?" I kill 5 guys, then 1 more, and when I kill a 7th guy, I'm told to tone it down. First, he killed 6 people in one day. Then one month and a day later, I kill someone and then told to tone it down. How does he know whether or not Aiden had been keeping away from killing people? Meanwhile, his character Carl kills whoever crosses his path, just to get to a girl. Carl goes and kill countless people and when I kill a 7th guy, I'm told to tone it down. Carl doesn't seem to be much different than Aiden! If anything,  he should tone it down! I just can't believe it. 1 month and 1 day later, kill a 7th guy and then, "Can you please tone it down?" HOW ABOUT YOU TONE IT DOWN?! It isn't very logical to tell me to tone it down when he has so much more going on! Sure, a lot has to change so Aiden can work with the others, but I don't want to be told to tone it down when Carl can't tone it down! Why can't Aiden just continue on with his usual act and make it more fun and challenging for when the time comes for Aiden to cooperate with others? *sarcastically* IT ISN'T LIKE ANYONE IS BEING PRO-FAVORED HERE! Seriously, the leader makes it so much harder for me to really do anything and makes it easier for everyone else. I'M NOT EVEN THE VILLAIN! I feel incredibly disrespected when he constantly makes it so much harder for me. Sure, the challenge is fun sometimes. But if I feel like as if I can't do anything and make no progress, then how in the world am I supposed to have fun? Role-playing is for having fun. I don't want to leave, I just don't to participate in a role-play where I can't have fun.
