About the Author
Joe Berger lives in Bristol, England.
Praise For Earth to Clunk…
“Berger’s artwork , with its Southern California–bungalow cheeriness, has a wonderful way of . . . stirring the ingredients into broad, spirited humor. Rarely have school letter-writing exercises been so much fun.”
“Smallcomb expertly channels a sarcastic kid who’s secretly a softie.”
“Friendships can blossom in the most unexpected ways and places. This is science fiction with a homey touch for the youngest readers.”
-School Library Journal
“Tongue-in-cheek text from a Maryland author is a lively match with Joe Berger’s hysterical illustrations.”
