Bongo Fishing by Thacher Hurd
In Bongo Fishing 11 year old Max meets a couple of extraterrestrials, but not your normal extraterrestrials. In a surprising twist they are pretty much short, blue grandparents. In this humorous book for kids, Max goes on a space fishing trip, has to help his alien friends get off earth when they have UFO problems and save his friend from a psychopathic therapist, all in the span of a few months.
Bongo Fishing is a great book for children. With its humorous and creative explanation of things in space and aliens, this book is a delight to read. But like I said this book will probably be more appealing to a younger demographic. While I found it pretty funny at times it was pretty childish (though in a good way). So overall for older kids this book is probably a 2 maybe 2.5 stars. But for kids it's 4.5 to 5 stars.
