Alien Superstar (Book #1) (Hardcover)
Don’t miss the sci-fi hijinks of Alien Superstar, the New York Times bestseller from Emmy-Award winner Henry Winkler and children’s book author Lin Oliver, with illustrations by Ethan Nicolle. Read the first book in the series that Diary of a Wimpy Kid author Jeff Kinney calls “truly out of this world!"
No one is shocked by the six-eyed alien strolling around the Universal back lot. The tourists just think he’s part of the show. It doesn’t take long for Buddy to land a role on a popular TV show, playing (of course) an alien. He becomes an overnight heartthrob and is suddenly faced with legions of adoring fans, rides in glamorous limos, and appearances at “all-the-shrimp-you-can-eat” red carpet parties. But can Buddy maintain his secret identity while in the spotlight?
