Have you ever had your kids fight over a book? I cannot recall that ever happening in my house. Yet, when my kids laid eyes on Alienology, that is exactly what happened. I cannot tell you how immensely satisfying that was. So, why all the pushing, grabbing, running and hiding?
Alienology is just fun. There are fun pictures, flaps to lift, stories to read and secrets to be found. Around the dinner table we explored the book, laughing and talking. We learned the universal gestures for aliens. We learned about alien brains and the evolution of eyeballs. There were things to touch, but be careful of the S.L.I.M.E! (Surface-Living Intelligent Multiplying Endolith) It will consume you in order to grow! Luckily, I was one of the few humans that are immune to it. There are charts to compare different species of aliens, and it tells you which are friendly and which are not. Do you want to know how big they are? How long they live? Where they live? It's all in this...
I own just about every ology product available - all of the dragon-, ocean-, pirate-, monster-, myth-, vampire-, spy-, egypt- and wizardology books, as well as the dragonology model sets and even the board and card games.
What I liked about the other books in the series is how they fictionalized the "lost book" account of the subject matter in a serious fashion. This made the other books a much more immersive experience for the reader.

While some younger kids may not notice this stylistic difference from the past ology books, I think the more intelligent/insightful/older kids and adults will see the difference and will be disappointed by this addition to the ology series. Did the ology company...
Could you identify someone from another planet? Have you ever been suspicious about the person you sat next to on the bus or that weird new neighbor? There are mysterious things happening everyday in our world, things that seem to have no explanation or that are given very flimsy explanations. Are all those reported "sightings" of lights in the sky and possible spacecraft crashes really just some kind of government cover-up? If these situations and questions ever cross your mind, then perhaps it's time for you to pick up the latest book on aliens by Professor Alan Grey.
ALIENOLOGY is the book that Professor Grey found in a used bookstore under a stack of old magazines from the '60s. He knew immediately what an important find this was and has worked hard to put it into a format that is appealing and chock full of amazing information. For instance, there are many highly unusual samples that readers can actually touch, like the specimen of protectonium,which is a material used...
