My Teacher Is an Alien

About the Story…

“Sixth Grade is just… out of this world”

Susan Simmons can tell that her new substitute teacher is really weird. But she doesn’t know how weird until she catches him peeling off his face—and she realizes that “Mr. Smith” is really an alien!

At first no one will believe her—except Peter Thompson, the class brain. When Peter and Susan discover Mr. Smith’s horrible plans for their class mates, they know they have to act fast. Only they can get rid of their extraterrestrial visitor—and save the rest of the sixth grade class from a fate worse than math tests!


My Teacher Fried My Brains

About the Story…

Brains are sizzling in the seventh grade…

The first day of seventh grade was probably the worst day of Duncan Dougal’s life. He knows that things are really bad when he finds an alien’s hand in a dumpster and then gets plugged into an alien brain fryer!

Can Duncan find out which of the four new teachers in his school is an alien before his brains get fried to a pulp—or before the aliens try to fry the whole planet?

“Coville deftly picks up the first book’s plot threads while weaving a new tale from Duncan’s point of view. The fast-paced plot and terse, familiar narration will attract readers to Coville’s continuing tales.”—ALA Booklist
