Just reread this for the first time in 20 years. Sep 24, Maria Janeva rated it it was amazing. I missed this book so much. Th book is about a boy that in an axcident he know tiny aliens. This book was cute and creative and anything dealing with “something eating homework” is funny for elementary students. When he go to the school and they ask him what happen with his homework he said that “aliens ate my homework”. As the first book in a four-book series, Coville sets up the story line and introduces the reader to a full cast of characters:
Jan 27, Lisa rated it it was amazing. Sep 18, Tanja rated it liked it Shelves: But there was a lot more science fiction themes introduced than I remember. So he laughs and the aliens are for real. Extraterrestrials invade Earth and a pair of middle schoolers hold the fate of the world in their hands in Aliens Ate My Homework, a delightfully comical intergalactic adventure from Universal and Lay-Carnagey Entertainment. So Colville’s aliens are especially good at sarcasm and put-downs. For some reason I didn’t trust her judgement to recommend me books when I was young.

Book Review: Aliens Ate My Homework, by Bruce Coville (Aladdin, 1993)
Can Rod, who is incapable of lying, keep his alien visitors a secret and help them succeed in their mission while getting his science project done on time?
This review is probably pretty biased since I loved Bruce Coville and he was probably my first introduction to common science fiction themes. My family loves listening to Bruce Corville books.
I enjoyed it as covlile adult, retired teacher. At one point I was thinking of not continuing it but then it took off, and I read it rather quickly. It reminds me of the schoolyard, when a lot of boys would spend half their recess just arguing about something, and putting a lot of energy into putting each other down and making sarcastic remarks.
This book surprised me as it turned out to be quite different from what I had expected su,mary to be. You are commenting using your Google account.

Refresh and try again. When you are reading, you imagine how the characters would look, and the illustrations fit perfectly to what I envisioned. I’m still thankful to this series for introducing me to some basic sci-fi concepts as a kid, but Ckville think I could have learned them from a more compelling story.
