Olive the Alien by Katie Saunders. Archie has a new baby sister named Olive. She is pink and frilly and looks a little like a marshmallow. Archie doesn’t understand his new sister and her behavior is confusing. He loves her but she speaks a language like boo ba de foo goo that sounds strange to him. She cries a lot and is loud. Maybe she is an alien from outer space! She does strange things and her meals were always messy. Whenever Mommy takes them out people always made funny faces at her. Archie begins to think she has strange powers that make normal people act strange around her. Mommy says Olive is not an alien from outer space and that she is just a baby. But Archie is not convinced. Finally Archie’s cousin William comes over with his baby brother. He acts a lot like Olive. William explains that that is how babies act and what babies always do. They speak the same strange language. They put everything in their mouth and cry loudly. Finally Archie tells Olive he is sorry. “You’re not and alien, you’re just a baby.” Until Olive makes a very terrible smell! It smells out of this world! Maybe he wasn’t wrong after all!
