Martian Mustache Mischief: Written by Brian Rock...Illustrated by Joshua Dawson
We always joked about how our uncle loved ketchup so much, it wouldn't have surprised us if he put it on his ice cream. This book brings that memory back with its description of willy-worm like aliens that drive humans around them to become entranced with that fanciest of red sauces. What makes this yarn such a success is its ability to take your typical cute alien story and make it something interesting and amusing for all ages. The very notion that ketchup can help a planet to regain its original color is indeed unparalleled in what I've formerly read or seen. The illustrations have Loony-Tunes character and truly help make this effort one of a kind in the visitors from space genre for kids.
