Synopsis: Do you think something's out there--a creature from another planet, perhaps? Read about those who encountered something strange and lived to tell the tale--or disappeared forever. Return to Roswell, New Mexico, half a century after an alien spaceship supposedly crashed there. Was it a UFO or just military experiments? Then move on and examine reports of other possible alien encounters, such as: * the fiery blast over the Tunguska region of Siberia--meteorite, comet or alien spacecraft? * the puzzling disappearance of pilot Frederick Valentich after he sighted a strange aircraft...* the mysterious air ships seen flying over Belgium by thousands of people, at incredible speeds. You'll wonder...Are we really alone in the universe? 48 pages (all in color), 5 1/2 x 8. NEW IN PAPERBACK
From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8-Five strange unexplained incidents are examined in each of these titles. Alien includes some frequently described cases such as Kenneth Arnold's original "flying saucer" view in 1947 and the Siberian explosion of 1908. Added to these are more obscure reports of an Australian pilot who may have encountered a UFO before disappearing, a high-speed aircraft over Belgium in 1990, and one British woman's experience with ball lightning. Each carefully described case is accompanied by accounts of similar events, some related scientific facts, and several theories that might explain them. Hauntings includes an eerie vision of Roman soldiers in York, England, in 1953, and Lincoln's famous death premonition, both of which are standard fare in books of this type. However, the supplemental historical material and possible explanations give these well-written tales more substance than is found in most surveys. In both volumes, a wealth of colorful illustrations and a few archival photographs heighten the drama. While psychedelic background colors and patterns also offer visual excitement, they, and the variously shaped text blocks, occasionally interfere with the text.
