Norman Flinch is a pretty average kid, until he is splattered all over by an alien space orb. The unsettling gunk leaves him with a rancid aroma that keeps everyone around him gagging. He turns to Wendell Higgins, the school science geek for help. Together they unlock the awe-inspiring secret of the Stinking Space Goo.

I loved your book!

Reader reviewed by Ohndrea

I loved your book! I especially loved the part where Norman found out that he could heal himself and he went to show his parents with a nife. It was halariuous!!!!!! I also liked the part where Norman was crawling across the lawn and the police were laughing at him. Overall, I thought that your book was going to be a little kids book but in the end I loved it. Thank you for wrighting such a wonderfull story!

Your book was great

Reader reviewed by maddie

Your book was very interesting. I love the creativity you put into your work. I loved the part when the robber held Norman and his sister at fork point. The aliens leaving the space ball was also very imaginative. Please keep writing your books. I will read all of them.

What a Book!

Reader reviewed by Keegan Holle

The book was amazing! It was funny and realistic at the same time. The characters were people I could relate to. This is a great children's book, and it is an easy reader that gets kids hooked on reading. I enjoyed it and I am in the 7th grade. The book was very pleasurable to read. I can not wait for more books to be published as sequels.

Interesting

Reader reviewed by Alex

I thought that the book was good. Although it is a bit too young for me, I belive. In the begining the book talked about aleins and I thougth that it was going to be boring because of that. I jugded wrong though, once I got reading a little farther, I realized that it got more interesting. Although it wasn't the best book that I have read, I thought that it was good, a little too young for me, but good.

Questionable at First - Entertaining at Last

Reader reviewed by Gabriel

As I had first been reading the book my mind was thinking, "What kind of dumb book is this?" But as you read the book and understand the point of veiw that was trying to be expressed, the book begins to make sense. At first it is talking about aliens, and I myself am NOT a science fiction reader. This was a large turn off in the book, but as I read further it became quite entertaining, and was enjoyable to read! It had a great plot, and had great details along the way. The ending was creative as well. I would recommend this book to other readers, except the age group whould be much lower. (Around 3rd and 4th graders.) I look forward to reading further in this series as a nice little 2 day book to fill in time. All in all, I am submitting a positive review, and I expect the same feeling from the other books to come from this series.

Amazing Norman Gets Super Powers

Reader reviewed by Abby

This book is a great book for little kids that is humorous. It is very interesting that Norman gets super powers from a baby ball from another planet. There were a few grammar errors in this book, some big words, and some sentences you have to read over to get the meaning. Overall this book is a good book for kids to read.
