Billy Barnes stood in the bathroom brushing his teeth.
Comments: Billy is brushing his teeth one morning when out of his toilet pop three aliens. They are looking for the Most High Emperor of the Universe and, well, he turns out to be Billy's baby brother, who's not even a year old. His parents come home just as the aliens are trying to take the baby home with them and a major ruckus ensues. This is a delightful story. Very silly, and very funny. The illustrations are just as fun as the story. This would make a perfect first chapter book for a child to read themselves.
