What’s the best day for an alien invasion? Halloween, of course. When Eek and Ack visit Earth during the ghoulish holiday, they fit right in with the other trick-or-treaters. Unfortunately, so does Wolfy the Wolfman!

I have to admit this book cracked me up. Eek and Ack travel to earth in their spaceship – that really looks like a washing machine – to discover why it is so hard to conquer. Their disguises are hilarious – one wearing a tutu and the other in a hooded robe of sorts. They end up traveling to earth on Halloween and meet up with a wolfboy. Let’s just say, they’re not staying long on this Earth.

This graphic novel is comical and fantastical, elements that I both enjoy. These books will be great for kids who like something a bit more funny. And this is another great book for librarians and teachers – including a glossary, a section talking a bit more about werewolves, discussion questions and writing prompts. Probably a book I’ll be purchasing for my school library.

Recommended for 2nd grade and up.
