About the Author:

Kathleen Krull has garnered starred reviews and awards for her many books. The Children's Book Guild of Washington, DC, honored her with its Nonfiction Award for her body of work that "has contributed significantly to the quality of nonfiction for children." She lives in San Diego, California, with her husband and sometime writing partner, Paul Brewer.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7-Krull describes the typical facts that are presented in most works about UFOs and a possible alien crash near Roswell, NM, in 1947. Various government explanations for debris found on a ranch managed by Vernon "Mac" Brazel are included. Pilot Kenneth Arnold's "flying saucer" sighting in the same year is recounted briefly as well. Whimsical alien faces and hands plus bowler-hat-shaped spaceships peek out of every corner of the pages. Humorous full-page pencil drawings, including one depicting three aliens heading for the Roswell Diner, alternate with more straightforward illustrations of the topics. This volume also has a serious side, featuring an 11-item bibliography and a listing of five well-chosen Web sites. This appealing package offers standard information about the long-standing mystery, but the subject is lightened by the playful art.
