9781941723029: Alien Mission

QB9 is a lonely, little alien until his parents give him a wish-a-ma-gig for his birthday and launch him into space on an extraordinary adventure through the galaxy to discover friendship on earth. 
Now armed with an awkward human body, a popular human name (Du Jour) and his expert computer Benni, he's taking earth by surprise. Sure, he commits a few obvious blunders along the way, but what new earthling wouldn't?

In a hilarious race across San Francisco, Du Jour learns the heart warming message that friendship comes in all shapes, colors and sizes.

INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR
 
Q - What makes Lady Jenniviere's Quill different?
 
A - I write Lady Jenniviere's Quill to make a difference in how children read. I want my books to offer important messages, to invite imagination, to show a different view point, but most importantly to teach children that life isn't always wrapped up in a neatly packaged happy ending. Sometimes the hero wins, sometime they fail and sometimes the monster turns out to be the hero. Life isn't black and white. My books are written to illustrate the beauty of the gray parts.
 
Q -What order should I read the books in?
 
A - Although, some characters appear in more than one book, I've written the series so you can read the books in any order.
 
Q -So, why should readers give these books a try?
 
A -Lady Jenniviere's Quill books are written so both children and their parents will enjoy reading them. It is my hope that the books will serve as a springboard for discussion. That is why each Lady Jenniviere's Quill book has a life lesson.
 
Tiffy's Terrible Top Hat----Anti bully

From the Author :

TEACH KIDS TO BE LITERATE NOT TO JUST READ AND MEMORIZE

I wrote Lady Jenniviere's Quill to introduce kids to different kinds of stories. I thought that was enough, until I spent a year on the road during my book tour. Gratefully, thousands of parents trusted me enough to share how concerned they were for their children's education. Their kids weren't reading books with substance: books that made them think, books that inspired discussion and books that fostered a love of reading.

I learned there's a hole in the education system right now. I realized there was a need for a completely new model of reading. A new program where parents take control of their children's literacy. A plan for hands on parents who want to discuss literature with their kids, who want to see their kids reading books with fascinating morals and riveting messages and most importantly, who want a plan where they watch their kids discover and develop a love of reading that lasts forever.

Public education no longer teaches critical thinking. That is absolutely unacceptable. Students are only asked questions where the answers can easily be found in the text. Gone are abstract questions, emotional questions and questions that provoke genuine thought. This modern way of teaching has devastating consequences. We have to do something to get our kids reading, thinking, writing and actively participating in their educations again.

Lady Jenniviere's Quill is written to get kids (and even parents) thinking. Each book has thoughtful issues that are stimulating and fun to consider from a moral, a psychological and/or a philosophical point of view. The beauty of this series is that young readers can enjoy the story and comprehend important issues no matter their age or developmental level. A six-year-old will understand the overarching moral while an eight-year-old will pick up on less obvious nuances.  Further still, a twelve-year-old will appreciate the ethical challenges and grasp the weighty issues involved in subplots and character struggles.

About the Author :

Lady Jenniviere was like any other girl, until one day while tending her rose garden; she came upon an injured bird--a cedar wax wing with a broken wing. Speaking quietly to reassure the frightened creature, Lady Jenniviere wrapped him in the folds of her gown and carried him inside where, using tape and popsicle sticks, she set his broken wing. The bird was grateful and thanked her for her kindness. He said his name was Nelson and asked if she'd mind if he hung around her palace while he recovered. Lady Jenniviere was delighted and the two became fast friends. Nelson enjoyed stories and asked Lady Jenniviere to read to him in her spare time. In the evenings, Lady Jenniviere sat in front of the fireplace with an old book in hand while her husband Lord Mark of Tanglewood, their three dogs Zoie, Mazi and Jordan, their parrot Story and Nelson gathered around to listen. On special occasions, Lady Jenniviere made up tales of epic heroes, spooky villains and mystical lands. These stories were Nelson's favorite. When his wing healed, he took Lady Jenniviere on a hike up a tall mountain to a cave no human had ever seen. Inside the cave, he showed her a magic ink well hidden away for centuries. He gave her the ink well as a gift for her kindness and hospitality. When they returned to the castle, Nelson pulled out a tail feather and instructed her to dip the quill into the ancient ink well. Amazingly, a story sprang to life and began writing itself upon the blank papers on her antique desk. Lady Jenniviere loved the story and thanked Nelson for his gift before he flew back to the forest on two healthy wings.
Soon, other birds heard of Lady Jenniviere's magic ink-well and brought her their tail feathers. Each quill revealed a new story--some scary, some happy and some just plain strange. Eventually, Lady Jenniviere had enough stories to begin sharing them with her friends. Books were bound and soon people everywhere were reading the tales of Lady Jenniviere's Quill.
