My rating: 5 of 5 stars
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 loved this unique perspective on the world. It was such a quick read but had so much meaning behind it. This graphic novel was great and had all the great things about love, acceptance, the big questions about the universe and many other things. It is certainly a book I would recommend to anyone looking for a cute unique read. I’m really glad I picked this up, it has made me question everything about life and how I view the world. We are all different in the world and not everyone is the same, this book makes me see the good in everything. It is deserving of its 5 star rating for sure.
As always, Happy reading xxx
