This is the bilingual (English/Spanish) version of Alien Invaders. There is also a vocabulary page at the end of the book.Bugs in the garden? Or are they alien invaders? A curious child compares small garden creatures to what he knows of space invaders. Antennas? Shiny armor and helmets? Are these Earth dwellers or something ‘out of this world’? Creepy crawlers abound in wacky, far–out colored pencil illustrations.
