I've seen these "Butt-Ugly Martians" series books around in the children's book room at work, and my curiosity was definitely piqued. Butt-Ugly Martians?! My suspicion that this would be a popular title was confirmed when I saw a young boy grab this one while exclaiming, "OH YEAH!"

Ok, so the cover, with its computer-animated silly alien creatures (not to mention the words "Butt-Ugly Martians) is appealing to kids. But, what about its content?

Pretty decent actually! Kids and adults would appreciate its humor (adults would get the subtle ridicule of American society). The plot is fun, science-fiction-y: the year is 2053, there are hoverboards and robotic dogs, and Martians are trying to destroy Earth. But, what do the Butt-Ugly Martians say to that? LET'S GET UGLY! This would be a great read aloud book. I was also incredibly impressed with its expansive vocabulary, as well as its explicit context clues—helpful for young readers.For example:
Mike: "Try not to look too conspicuous."
2-T (aloof alien): "Con what?"
Angela: "Try not to be seen."

All in all, I approve of kids reading this!
