Nine-year-old Morgan is fascinated with aliens. He lives in the Pacific Northwest, land of the sasquatch, and naturally is fascinated with those as well. When he meets new kid Lewis, whose parents own a motel named the Stay On Inn, the adventures begin with slingshots, underpants, annoying older sisters, and neighbors dressed up in bear suits.

Praise for Alien Encounter

"Young fans of the Magic Tree House mysteries will warm to Morgan and Lewis and eagerly await the next installment of their antics." - Booklist
 
"With an authentic, zany splash of fourth-grade humor, perspective, and imagination, this inaugural series title targets boys and will captivate elementary readers." - School Library Journal
 

"This book is the first of a series, and the seeds of its sequel are firmly sown, the alien’s identity barely solved when a sasquatch turns up. It’s all funny and sweet and never too clever." - The Horn Book

 

Henry's Heart:

 

“… a genius pairing of fiction and nonfiction.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

 

“The whimsically crafted tale features not only a pleasingly goofy cartoon cast but also some very clever misdirection in the ‘love story’ episode, which is certain to elicit groans and giggles.”—BCCB

 

“Harper offers up a heroic heart that looks a lot like the real thing ‘without the eyes and mouth, of course,’ and he’s an immensely appealing figure, ideal for teaching readers about this important organ.”—Publishers Weekly

 

“This clever book is an excellent choice for story hours and primary-grade classrooms.” —School Library Journal
