Graphically Great

EARTHLING by Mark Fearing (Chronicle 2012) takes a common circumstance: being worried about about being the new kid in school-and takes it to new heights, literally. When Bud boards the wrong bus that fateful first day in a new school, he is transported to the Cosmos Academy, a place where many different aliens attend classes. Earthlings are feared here, and Bud must pretend to be something else as he struggles to find a way back to his own home and planet. <183>


  1. I'm always looking for good first day of school books. I think this would be a good one to add.

  2. Sounds like a fascinating book to read on the first day of school to help students with those first day jitters.
