Alien Superstar (Book #1)
Don’t miss the instant New York Times bestseller from Emmy Award winner Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver that Diary of a Wimpy Kid author Jeff Kinney calls “truly out of this world!"
No one is shocked by the six-eyed alien strolling around the Universal back lot. The tourists just think he’s part of the show. It doesn’t take long for Buddy to land a role on a popular TV show, playing (of course) an alien. He becomes an overnight heartthrob and is suddenly faced with legions of adoring fans, rides in glamorous limos, and appearances at “all-the-shrimp-you-can-eat” red carpet parties. But can Buddy maintain his secret identity while in the spotlight?
Praise For Alien Superstar (Book #1)…

"The creators of the Hank Zipzer books take full comedic advantage of an outlandish premise."

"Sci-fi lovers will find Winkler’s new book completely out of this world. . . A funny interstellar adventure that will have readers watching the cosmos for the second book to arrive."
— SLJ Review
"A silly sci-fi series."
— Kirkus Reviews
"Winkler and Oliver bring their sharply honed sense of comedy and extensive experience in the television industry to Buddy’s antics on the set . . . This results in an endearingly strange protagonist that will resonate with any kid who has felt like an outsider. A sense of humor and empathy are required for this zany adventure."
