This is a story that is all about a cat who discovers a tiny spaceship. He believes at first it is just a toy but he soon realizes that it is filled with aliens! The spaceship is broken and they cannot get home but along comes an unlikely helper- an ant who knows how to save the day!

His house was not very zippy or cool, but it was very safe.

This would be fun to do retelling with. Also, comparing and contrasting different adaptations.

Another adaptation of the three little pigs story. This version takes a fun spin on the traditional story. Taking place in outer space, three little aliens go on their way to find a planet of their own. It holds onto the themes and similarities of the original story.

“It looked carefully at the toys. None of the toys was the one it was looking for. The hoctopize showed the toys a picture of its Cuddles who was lost.”

This is a very cute story that ties supernatural elements of aliens and UFO‘s into a childrens book. The toys experience outer space for the first time and encounter an alien.

This is a story about a bunch of toys that get left outside overnight, and they see the stars and space for the first time. They then see a spaceship coming down and it sucks the toys up into it. The “hoctopize” alien comes out looking upset and does not see the toy it was looking for. They all have a party in space and convince hoctopize to let all of the toys go back home.

I enjoyed the font and illustrations in this story. Each of the made up words were in a different color to place emphasis on them. The aliens looked very odd which was entertaining as well, and easy to tell they are aliens.
