Is it just us or are aliens funny? I like the stories where the aliens are hanging out, living next door and blending in with humanity. No one seems to notice that they are little different. Alien invasions despite their superior technology and plan to dominate the world can also be humorous. We like alien adventures in any book genre as long as they don’t take themselves too seriously.
My conclusion after making this list: there are not enough funny alien books for kid out there! Authors! Please write more! They get kids reading.
Funny Alien Picture Books
Mr. Wuffles by David Weisner
It’s an alien invasion of very small aliens and Mr. Wuffles, the family cat, is intrigued. This is far more interesting than the cat toys his family has been tempting him with! The aliens want to get away but they need to repair their ship after Mr. Wuffles used it as a toy. The native insects are recruited for a double team against Mr. Wuffles and an escape plan is hatched. Who knew that aliens and insects speak the same language? [picture book, ages 4 and up]
