SNATCH A STORY
THE WICKED READ

Published by Candlewick Press
Age Range: 3 – 7 Years
Ahhh-flying-saucer-shooting-star-CHOO! Laughter is the best medicine when you’re a little alien feeling under the weather.
Little Alien is sick. And sick is extra-terrestrial bad when you have two scratchy throats, five ears that hurt, and three runny noses. Splatch! Sputter! Spurt! Luckily Mama and Daddy Alien have an arsenal of lunar decongestants and meteor showers on hand to make him feel a little better (not to mention a Milky Way milkshake to help the medicine go down). Even so, the family’s alien pooch, Mars Rover, can’t stand to see his little buddy feeling out of sorts. Can a loyal pup’s funny tricks finally coax a smile?

THE CREEPY CREATORS
Katy Duffield is the award-winning author of more than 25 books for kids that include the super spooky topics of aliens, poltergeists and the Bermuda Triangle. But she writes about fun stuff, too—sneaky cows, loud little girls, orangutans, and penguins. This time of year, a fangtastically favorite snack fuels her writing
K.G. Campbell was educated in an old, turreted school with ghosts and secret passages and stuff. There he learned to love all things ghoulish, ghastly and rather gothic. He spent his days lurking in gloomy corners, writing peculiar stories and illustrating them with quirky characters. Many years later, that is exactly what he still does. K.G. is the illustrator of Kate DiCamillo’s Newbery Award winner, Flora & Ulysses, and several picture books including Katy Duffield’s Aliens Get the Sniffles Too, Ahhh-Choo! He is author/illustrator of Ezra Jack Keats honor book and Golden Kite winner Lester’s Dreadful Sweaters, and also The Mermaid and the Shoe and Dylan the Villain.
