Gabby Duran and the Unsittables + Giveaway
Our kids love to read so I am always on the lookout for new books! Especially with summer coming up, I’m looking even more for reading books for different ages and reading levels (since our children’s ages range from 7 to 13). I recently discovered a fun book – Gabby Duran and the Unsittables, written by Elise Allen and Daryle Conners. It’s basically BABY-SITTERS CLUB meets MEN IN BLACK in this sweet, funny new middle grade series about a world-renowned tween babysitter who is recruited to take care of extra-terrestrial children. It’s available in stores now!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Case File: The First Unsittable
Summary: The Association Linking Intergalatics and Earthlings (hereby known as A.L.I.E.N.) has a new member. After months of investigation, Gabby Duran, Associate 4118-25125A, has proven herself to be a babysitter extraordinaire. Her celebrity clients fly her around the country to care for their rambunctious little humans. Our spy, Associate 4118-23432B, otherwise known as Edwina, believes Gabby can be trusted with the truth: aliens are living among humans on Earth. And here at A.L.I.E.N we believe that even extraterrestrials need a babysitter now and then. No one was up to the task…until now.
After accepting the top-secret position, Edwina has paired our new associate up with her first charge, a little girl from the planet Flarknartia. The timing for associate 4118-25125A is less than ideal. It’s a school day on Planet Earth,Gabby’s audition for the solo part in the band is tonight, and this tiny alien is a bit more than meets the eye.
Can Gabby Duran, Associate 4118-25125A, First Sitter to the Unsittables, keep her otherworldly charge safe in the unpredictable halls of middle-school and keep A.L.I.E.N hidden?
