Blast Off! (Alien in my Pocket, Bk. 1)
by Ball, Nate
When a four-inch-tall alien crash-lands through Zack McGee's bedroom window, Zack is sure he's about to become the first victim in a new War of the Worlds. But when the alien turns out to have weapons that are more ticklish than terrifying, Zack realizes that it's up to him to protect the alien in his pocket from the world.
Like every book in the Alien in My Pocket series, Blast Off! mixes Common Core-aligned science and safe, hands-on experiments with hilarious stories that young readers will love.
