Illustrated in black-and-white. Eight-year-old Harriet Butler is not really lonely--her housekeeper is a hoot and her dad's awfully nice--but she lost her mom when she was little. The last thing Harriet expects is to meet a space alien on vacation from another planet! But one morning Wiz (as she names him) appears in her father's wheat field disguised as a hare. Proving to be a wonderful friend, Wiz turns Harriet's summer into one that's truly memorable.  

About Dick King-Smith

See more books from this Author
Dick King-Smith was born and raised in Gloucestershire, England, surrounded by pet animals. After twenty years as a farmer, he turned to teaching and then to writing children's books. Dick writes mostly about animals: farmyard fantasy, as he likes to call it, often about pigs, his special favorites. He enjoys writing for children, meeting the children who read his books, and knowing that they get enjoyment from what he does. Among his well-loved books is Babe, The Gallant Pig , which was recently made into a major motion picture, and was nominated for an Academy Award. Dick currently lives with his wife in a small 17th-century cottage, about three miles from the house where he was born.
