Doing alien voices gives narrator Josiah John Bildner a fun challenge. When the Smith family's spaceship crashes to Earth, they're forced to live and talk like Earthlings. Bildner skillfully renders the conversations between Kell, now a third-grader, and his new friend, Bree Hendricks, as Kell learns more about his new home. An audition for the choir's solo, a moving performance of "My Country 'Tis of Thee," stands out. Word misunderstandings between the aliens and Earthlings add chuckles: Is a blow-up spaceship a giant balloon or an explosion? This is a worthy addition to the alien genre for kids.
