BOOK NAME: Mysteries, Legends and Unexplained Phenomena: UFOs and Aliens
AUTHOR: Preston E. Dennet and Rosemary Ellen Guiley
Unlike most books about UFOs that you might have heard of, this one explains the history of UFOs and explains the differences between UFO sightings, reported landings and crashes, and alien abductions. It also gives many different examples of each. Some normal things like weather balloons and the planet Venus are commonly mistaken for UFOs in the sky.
What’s interesting is that the book claims there have have been recordings of UFO sightings since the Stone Age. In the first chapter, it gives dates and happenings that involve alien and UFO sightings that are more than 2,000 years old. The book also talks about the different types of reported aliens, such as tall humanoids, short humanoids, and gray aliens. Certain parts of the book also talk about how the government doesn’t share information about those UFOs and aliens that much.
If you read this book, I promise you learn something new about UFOs and aliens. The reason I picked up this book at my school library was to have a laugh at what crazy people have to say about them. But this book was convincing enough to get me to actually consider that aliens may be real. All books have something good about them, and this one takes a ridiculous topic like aliens, and explains it as an everyday topic.
BOOK NAME: The Get Rich Quick Club
AUTHOR: Dan Gutman
This book is about three 12-year-old friends named Gina, Rob and Quimby, who want to become millionaires by the time they’re teenagers. They start their own club to come up with different ideas on easy ways to get rich, but they couldn’t come up with anything. That is until Gina said they might as well just sit in her yard to wait for a UFO to land and Rob yelled “That’s it! We could make a UFO!” They then made a photo of what appears to be a UFO by throwing plates and other things in the air and taking blurry pictures of them. They took their best photo to the boss of a newspaper company who paid them for it and then they became famous and were on TV. It ended when Rob feels guilty and tells everyone that the picture is fake.
My favorite part of this book is the very end, when there’s a huge surprise. I don’t want to give it away, but let’s just say that they don’t end up with a lot of money, but they do get to see something very amazing that I think most everyone would want to see.
I liked the whole story because I thought it was funny how these kids made everyone think there had been a UFO.
