Can't get enough of out of this world adventures?
I Am Number Four, staring Alex Pettyfer and Dianna Agron (of Glee fame) hit theaters this weekend and we're celebrating with a list of other alien invasions.
Check out these alien inspired adventures (all available totally free at the library!)
You can check out the book that inspired the movie, I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore.
In the beginning they were a group of nine. Nine aliens who left their home planet of Lorien when it fell under attack by the evil Mogadorian. Nine aliens who scattered on Earth. Nine aliens who look like ordinary teenagers living ordinary lives, but who have extraordinary, paranormal skills. Nine aliens who might be sitting next to you now.
The Nine had to separate and go into hiding. The Mogadorian caught Number One in Malaysia, Number Two in England, and Number Three in Kenya. All of them were killed. John Smith, of Paradise, Ohio, is Number Four. He knows that he is next.
