Imagine if the first alien kid to land on Earth was sent to your school - not in secret, but with the kind of open fanfare of Chelsea Clinton going to Stanford or Prince Harry attending Eton. That's what happened at Tim Tompkins' school. This is Tim's story. When Tim Tompkins comes home and finds a two foot high orange alien called Beebo Frimbat sitting at his desk, he knows he's in for a hard time. After all, Beebo is a dedicated mischief-maker who thinks trouble is the spice of life. But even Beebo's past pranks don't prepare Tim for finding his underwear flying from a school flagpole. Still, it's in fun. Or is it? Do Beebo's pranks have anything to do with the plan to derail the mission of the Fatherly One? And is it really just an accident when Beebo locks Pleskit's faithful bodyguard into an alternate dimension populated by man-eating monsters?
About the Author
Bruce Coville was born in Syracuse in 1950. He first became interested in writing when he was in the sixth grade, and started writing seriously at the age of 17. He married in 1969, aged 19, and started collaborating on books with his wife, Katherine Dietz, an artist. They have three children. He had many other jobs along the way, including toy maker, gravedigger, cookware salesman and assembly line worker, finally sticking with teaching until his first book was published in 1977. Bruce has published over sixty books since then and now has more than 12 million copies in print. Bruce has a lifelong interest in aliens and certainly believes in their existence. He says: "Absolutely there's life out there. I think it's less likely we'll find something than something else will find us. The question is whether they'll want to talk to us or not!"
