    1. 3.5 stars rounded up because solid, fun SF for youngsters is still in short supply, and this is pretty darn good. I see that another GR member remembers it from second-grade; I don't think it's quite that young but certainly curious readers 9-12 can still get a kick out of it. A little predictable and rushed for me, but then, I would have liked it as a kid so let's judge this adventure that way instead of being all cynical.

    2. One of my first introductions to science fiction, Shape-Changer shaped my love of the genre and of reading in general. It's been a while since I read it, but I remember how captivated my second grade imagination was by the story.Awesome things about this book:1) A young, male protagonist and a female deuteragonist. Boy characters were awesome because I was a boy and I could relate. Girl characters were awesome because girls were this enigmatic curiosity. They were like me: fun-loving, adventurou [...]

    3. Aimed at younger readers, this book was a quick, fun read for me as well.

Lines like the openers kept me smiling: "In the beginning, I figured I had to be dreaming -- or else my brain was turning into Silly Putty. There was that loud sound from the sky at three o'clock Monday mo [...]

    4. Again, Bill Brittain keeps it short and simple, with an imagination to share. Probably one of the shortest alien stories there is, with the most basic concepts - and you can read the whole thing in a day pretty much - but still there is plenty of entertainment. Makes you want to write your own sci-fi and add to the plot.

    5. This is kind of a cute little book about two aliens--one a policeman and the other a criminal--who crash land on earth. The policeman, Zymel, enlists the help of Frank and Lauren in finding the criminal before he destroys the earth.

    6. Cute little story of aliens landing on Earth and of course only the children know about them. One of the aliens is looking for an escaped criminal who he escaped when their craft crashed. He enlists some of the local kids to help him find the bad alien.
