Steve the Alien by G. Brian Benson begins with a boy named Zeke who, while walking along on a snowy winter’s day, hears a sound in the sky. Zeke soon discovers that a spaceship is landing right near him. His mind is racing with all kinds of thoughts and ideas about what could be happening at any moment. When a little green creature emerges and speaks to Zeke, Zeke is surprised that the alien speaks English. His name is Steve and he tells Zeke that he is on a scavenger hunt. A contest to see who can find and bring back the best pair of shoes. Steve tells Zeke that he learned to speak his language at school, and that is where he got his license to fly. He answers Zeke’s questions about how many planets he has visited, and how far he has flown.

G. Brian Benson does a superb job of bringing this short story to life, especially with the help of Paul Hernandez, whose wonderfully bright and colorful illustrations jump right off the pages. The way this story is presented, I could actually visualize a teacher, parent, or librarian reading this book to a group of children, showing them the vibrant pictures as each page is turned. I also thought it was really cool that the story was written in verse, which reminded me instantly of Dr. Seuss. Steve the Alien is a wonderfully put together package of words and pictures that hit a home run with me. Well done!
