ALIEN IN A BOTTLE
New York : HarperCollins,
IL 3-6, RL 5.3
few years ago when I was in Venice, I visited a glass blower. It
is an amazing thing to watch. I loved watching the glass go from
almost a liquid to a beautiful glass or bowl or vase. It is a demanding
craft to learn and perform. In this book, eighth grader Sean wants
to become a glass blower. He has the opportunity to learn if he can
attend the museum high school but his parents are against it. The
materials are expensive and the craft can be dangerous. They also
don't see a future in glass blowing. So what does this have to do
with aliens? While Sean is looking in a dumpster for discarded glass
to work on, he finds a very interesting bottle. Out from the bottle
comes Dinn Tauro, Tagg, and Squeeto. These three are aliens who complicate
Sean's life more than he could ever imagine.
