Product Description

Product Description

"Enchanting!" -Ellie Ann, New York Times bestseller

Many strange things wait inside these pages. There's a fuzzy ball of kindness, camped out on a grumpy man's porch. A chewed piece of gum with a mind of its own. A smart Alec who actually stands in line twice when they're handing out brains. A girl who isn't afraid when all the plants in her neighborhood come to life.

This collection of science fiction and fantasy stories for kids by award-winning author Anne E. Johnson is perfect for ages 8-12, or anyone with a child's heart.

HASH(0xa4dc0e70) out of 5 stars Otherworldly tales about the wonders of human goodness and acceptance Oct. 12 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
It's easy to imagine Alice (of Wonderland fame) sitting under a tree reading these lovely stories to a cat curled up in her lap. Johnson's witty and gentle stories, each one a sly model of deft writing, are about and for children. Sometimes, as in "Trolls and Aliens," the characters do not seem to be of this world; other times ("Ivy's Vine") recognizable children interact with non-human creatures that display human sensibilities. But the underlying message is consistent and resonant: The world is a diverse and magical place that offers wonderful possibilities if your heart is open to embrace them. What Johnson sets forth here is a marvelous collection of allegories on human kindness, diversity and mutual respect -- along with some very funny, deliciously droll reflections on what it means to be a kid -- even a kid with brains coming out of his ears.

HASH(0xa4dc0ec4) out of 5 stars Smart, with an extra helping of attitude Oct. 12 2015
By Cosmic Reader - Published on Amazon.com

I was glad to see this author's story "Brains Coming Out Of My Ears," which I had read previously on a British fiction website called AlfieDog. It's a hilarious tale about a kid who gets handed a second brain by accident while standing in line in the Parts Department. The fast-paced adventure story definitely involves some gooey situations and sneaky fun with vocabulary. What kid wouldn't delight in the idea of "extra crinkle quota"?

By Tony Parsons - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
As a former school social worker my only suggestion is add some color pictures. Kids love visual.

I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.

A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. 15 very well written MS-age children’s short stories (book). They were all very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. They all could make another great children’s movie, animated cartoons, mini TV series. Not for every kid so I will rate it at 4/5 stars.

Thank you for the free Goodreads; Autographed; paperback book

HASH(0xa4b9a6d8) out of 5 stars Lessons and stories for all ages Oct. 18 2015
By Kevin M. Hopson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This collection of short tales provided a much-needed escape from reality while still allowing me to relate to the characters...no matter how strange some might be. What I love about the book is the author's creativity, simplicity, subtle messages (without coming across as preachy), and her ability to apply these stories to readers of all ages. In a time when so many stories lack true writing efficiency and focus more on excessive descriptive prose, Things from Other Worlds is a breath of fresh air for those of us who want fast-paced and compact storytelling. Additionally, it's difficult to take any one of these stories too seriously thanks to Johnson's humor, which only adds to the book's allure.
HASH(0xa4dc0f84) out of 5 stars Buy This Book--you won't regret it! Oct. 26 2015

I bought this for a friend's child. Before wrapping it I thought I'd read a story. Ended up reading the entire book. Buy this book--for a child, for yourself--but buy it! It is wonderful fun and has some lessons in human kindness and acceptance that we can all use. What a quirky, entertaining and thoughtful addition to any adult or child's library.
