In a near wordless masterpiece that could only have been devised by David Wiesner, a cat named Mr. Wuffles doesn't care about toy mice or toy goldfish. He's much more interested in playing with a little spaceship full of actual aliens-but the ship wasn't designed for this kind of rough treatment. Between motion sickness and damaged equipment, the aliens are in deep trouble. When the space visitors dodge the cat and take shelter behind the radiator to repair the damage, they make a host of insect friends. The result? A humorous exploration of cooperation between aliens and insects, and of the universal nature of communication involving symbols, "cave" paintings, and gestures of friendship. AGES: 4 to 8 AUTHOR: David Wiesner is the second person in the Caldecott Medal's history to win the award three times, for Tuesday (1992), The Three Pigs (2002), and Flotsam (2007), and has also received two Caldecott Honors.

Industry Reviews

"Expertly imagined, composed, drawn and colored, this is Wiesner at his best."

-- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Wiesner once again produces a fantasy adventure that isn't like anything else around."
-- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"This exemplary Wiesnerian blend of ordinary and extraordinary incorporates the delights of Borrowers-style innovations, quintessential cat behavior, and Wiesner's own exquisitely fashioned art."

-- Horn Book (starred review)

"Once again Wiesner dips into his impressible imagination to deliver a mostly wordless conceptual picture book where the mundane and the magical collide. . . .Wiesner is a three-time Caldecott winner. Three. Fans will be ready to pounce."

-- Booklist (starred review)

"Visual storytelling at its best."
-- School Library Journal (starred review)

"The award-winning Wiesner (his trophy collection would make Meryl Streep blush) is a master of the form, a magical realist who makes the commonplace seem suddenly more interesting."
-- The Atlantic Wire

"Fans of Tuesday will recognize Wiesner's easy shift from the mundane to the fantastical here as well as his deft and plausible creation of a skewed reality. . . . On a more dramatic note, there's a Spielberg/Lucas level of glory to the bold ant-back and ladybug-flying escape scenes (you can practically hear the John Williams score)."
