From the superstar team of Emmy Award-winning actor Henry Winkler and children's book writer and TV producer Lin Oliver comes a new out-of-this-world middle-grade series.
Henry Winkler has been a household name for decades, and Winkler and Oliver’s Hank Zipzer series was a bestseller. Though neither author has visited another star system, between the two of them, they’ve made hundreds of TV shows and will infuse their Hollywood expertise into this hilarious story.
Winkler and Oliver will be in conversation with CNN journalist Holly Firfer at this Opening Night of the 28th Edition of the Book Festival of the MJCCA.
About the Book
Highly illustrated and packed with laughs, this new middle-grade series is perfect for fans of Tom Angleberger and Mac Barnett.
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?
