Eight-year-old Joe is about to become a big brother, and while at the hospital, he meets Mika from Eljo, where children hatch out of eggs and life is different from anything Joe knows, but when Mika is suddenly gone one day, Joe is left with a new appreciation for the wonders of the universe. description: Product Description:
"Eight-year-old Joe is waiting alone at home for the birth of his sibling when he sees something fall from the sky. It's Mika, from the planet Eljo, hanging by the seat of his pants in Joe's apple tree. During the first meeting, the two explore the thought-provoking concept of when down becomes up and vice versa...The importance of questioning everything, from what's a pancake to religious beliefs, makes this gentle story fun to read as well as eye-opening."-School Library Journal
