KIRKUS REVIEW

 ``We were all in school when...an alien spaceship crashed through the roof,'' reports the narrator, who goes on to describe how frightened they all were of the ``Monster'' that climbed out and lumbered after them, finally removing its helmet and revealing a face as horrible as they had feared. Still, it was friendly, and they took a picture to remember it by before it flew away. In the generalized, attractively colorful illustrations, the children are cleverly posed so that their faces are never shown until the end--when it develops that they are three-eyed and green, whereas the ``monster'' is a fresh- faced human. Satisfactory sf for the youngest, with a salutary message as a dividend. (Picture book. 4-8)
