Staff Reviews

Willie is a Texan who loves his barbecue! When he heads outside to check on his grill, he finds a spaceship landing in his backyard. These aliens aren’t hostile – they’re hungry, and they gobble up his ribs, sausage, and chili. To keep them entertained, Willie plays the fiddle and they square dance the night away. Our friend Kathy Duval has created a very fun picture book, and Adam McCauley’s illustrations match it perfectly.

— Cathy


Aliens have landed on Willy's farm, and they're not leaving without a square dance and a square meal! So fire up that grill, lay on the barbeque sauce, and snatch up that fiddle. Told in verse, this rollicking story puts a twist on the typical encounter with the third kind. Adam McCauley's out-of-this-world illustrations match Kathy Duval's hoe-down rhymes like ribs and taters! Get ready for some extraterrestrial, lip-smacking fun.
