This charmingly illustrated children's picture book is all about the importance of having fun with "real toys" like bikes, balls, and dolls--instead of computers and electronics. Written for kids aged 5-7, Mario and the Aliens tells the sweet story of a little boy who makes friends with space visitors. Little Mario is a computer geek who is on the computer day and night. He will not leave his computer. Suddenly he hears a commotion in the back yard--the aliens have landed! These creatures have heard about all the cool things that earth kids do to play, and they want to have fun too. Since the aliens are tired of computers and electronic stuff, Mario must show them how to play with traditional toys. Satisfied at having discovered the secrets of earth children, the aliens return to their planet, while Mario rediscovers the joys of playing outside.
