Sweet and funny picture book that teaches you how to meet Aliens — can be used with humans as well.

Space is huge and unknown, but perhaps somewhere there are real Aliens. One day they might come to visit the Earth, and there’s a chance that they land in your backyard. In that case it is good to know how to act.

This future classic will gently teach how to meet new people and act in new situations, things which are often difficult for all of us.
