A four-inch-tall alien named Amp comes to conquer Earth but winds up crash-landing through Zack McGee’s bedroom window. When Amp’s weapons turn out to be more ticklish than terrifying, Zack realizes that rather than protect the world, it’s up to him to protect the alien in his pocket.
 
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.

When Amp, the four-inch tall lead scout from the alien planet Erde, devises a plan to alert his commanders to call off the pending invasion of Earth, he decides to use parts from Zack and Olivia’s old walkie-talkies to build a quantum radio. Unfortunately, his plans go awry, and instead of contacting Erdian Central Command, he accidentally alerts the whole town that there's an alien in their backyard. Now it’s up to Zack and Olivia to save their alien friend from being discovered and to save the planet from an invasion.

Like every book in the Alien in My Pocket series, Radio Active is complete with lively illustrations and fun scientific facts, and supports the Common Core State Standards.

Alien in My Pocket #4: On Impact!

by Nate Ball, illustrated by Macky Pamintuan

When Zack crashes his bike, he winds up stuck at home with his arm in a sling, and his baseball season on the line. It's the worst thing ever—until Zack realizes that the reason he crashed his bike is because his four-inch-tall alien house guest, Amp, took its brakes. Now Zack's stuck at home, unable to do much of anything but hang out with his annoying little brother, Taylor. Of course, Taylor's ready to take full advantage in order to find out once and for all what exactly Zack has been hiding in his pocket.

Like every book in the Alien in My Pocket series, On Impact! is complete with lively illustrations and fun scientific facts, and supports the Common Core State Standards.
