It's the weirdest alien invasion ever!
"I cannot tell a lie," says Rod Allbright. And it's the truth. Ask him a question, and he's bound to give you an honest answer. Which is why when his teacher asks what happened to last night's math assignment, Rod has to give the only answer he can: "Aliens ate my homework, Miss Maloney!"
Of course, no one believes Rod this time, so they don't bother to ask him why the aliens are here -- which is just as well, since he is sworn to silence about their secret mission; and the fact that he has been drafted to help them.
About the Author
Bruce Coville was born in Syracuse.

(He might have read the book sooner, but he couldn't understand it until then.) Mr. Coville lives in New York City with a large, lazy cat named Spike. He has written more than three dozen books for children, including the best-selling My Teacher Is and Alien series.
