Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too by Jomny Sun
Publication Date: June 27, 2017
Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too is the illustrated story of a lonely alien sent to observe Earth, only to meet all sorts of creatures with all sorts of perspectives on life, love, and happiness, all while learning to feel a little better about being an alien—based on the enormously popular Twitter account, @jonnysun.
Here is the unforgettable story of Jomny, a lonely alien who, for the first time ever, finds a home on our planet after learning that earthlings can feel lonely too. Jomny finds friendship in a bear tired of other creatures running away in fear, an egg struggling to decide what to hatch into, an owl working its way to being wise, a tree feeling stuck in one place, a tadpole coming to terms with turning into a frog, a dying ghost, a puppy unable to express itself, and many more.
Through this story of a lost, lonely and confused alien finding friendship, acceptance, and love among the creatures of Earth, we will all learn how to be a little more human. And for all of us earth-bound creatures here on this planet, we can all be reminded that sometimes, it takes an outsider to help us see ourselves for who we truly are.
I didn’t really know what I was getting into with this one, but I knew that I’d seen great reviews on Goodreads, so when I was looking for something cute and happy to read, I decided I might as well check it out from the library. I thought I’d like it, but I definitely didn’t expect it to be my first five-star book of the year.
I have a lot of thoughts about this book, but they mostly all fit into two categories. First, it was just so cute and wholesome and nice. Second, it just made me so, so happy. I read it in one night and I don’t think that I can recommend it enough. It’s so quirky and wonderful.
I’ll leave you with two scenes I enjoyed:
