Babysitting can be a breeze when the kids behave well, or it can be a hassle when the little munchkins decide to turn into full-on terrors. But no matter what kind of babysitting experiences you’ve had, chances are they’re pretty tame compared to what Gabby goes through in Gabby Duran and the Unsittables by Elise Allen and Daryle Conners.
Here’s the scoop (aka the official case file from the publisher):
The Association Linking Intergalatics and Earthlings (hereby known as A.L.I.E.N.) has a new member. After months of investigation, Gabby Duran, Associate 4118-25125A, has proven herself to be a babysitter extraordinaire. Her celebrity clients fly her around the country to care for their rambunctious little humans. Our spy, Associate 4118-23432B, otherwise known as Edwina, believes Gabby can be trusted with the truth: aliens are living among humans on Earth. And here at A.L.I.E.N we believe that even extraterrestrials need a babysitter now and then. No one was up to the task…until now.
After accepting the top-secret position, Edwina has paired our new associate up with her first charge, a little girl from the planet Flarknartia. The timing for associate 4118-25125A is less than ideal. It’s a school day on Planet Earth, Gabby’s audition for the solo part in the band is tonight, and this tiny alien is a bit more than meets the eye.
Can Gabby Duran, Associate 4118-25125A, First Sitter to the Unsittables, keep her otherworldly charge safe in the unpredictable halls of middle-school and keep A.L.I.E.N hidden?
Well, we know the answer to that question because we’ve read the book already. But obviously we’re not going to tell you exactly what happens! Besides, we’re sworn to secrecy by A.L.I.E.N.
Instead we’ll just say that the story is fun, the aliens are hilarious, and the whole thing is a blast to read. It’s not an epic adventure, and it doesn’t pretend to be — instead, it’s a quick, funny, wacky read.
