Summer Reading Spotlight: "Gabby Duran and the Unsittables," by Elise Allen & Daryle Conners #GabbyDuran

I work at a library, and we’re planning our summer activities, so I’ve got summer reading on my mind! Did you know that students can lose two months’ worth of learning over the summer? Fortunately, we can easily combat this by making sure that our kids keep reading during summer break. But, as most of us have found, it’s not easy to get kids to read unless we find material that will interest them. I recently learned about a new book that sounds like a great choice for kids between the ages of 9 and 12.


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.

Case File: The First Unsittable

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?
