"Counting the alien who crashed my birthday party, we hadhad three sightings. Sure things. By that point, there was no denying we had a problemwith aliens. Maybe they don't come by my house any more often than they come by ...say,for example...yours. Maybe I just notice them more than other people do. Personally, Ifind them hard to miss. There's never been a time when I've had to stop and think, 'Now,let me see. Was that the mail carrier or was that an alien?" Meet Will Denis. Will's an ordinary kid. He's got an ordinary younger brother.His dad and mom are pretty ordinary too. Except for one thing: Mom's cooking. Whatshe calls "cookies" and "bran muffins" (Dad says science hasn't yet classified them) seemto be attracting strange life-forms from other planets. You might think this would have a big effect on Will and his brother, Robby. And it'strue, getting rid of pesky aliens is a tough business. But somehow, Will and Robbymanage to stay just two ordinary kids...depending on how you look at it, ofcourse.
