"Everyone's a aliebn when ur a aliebn too is the illustrated story of a lonely alien sent to observe Earth, only to meet all sorts of creatures with all sorts of perspectives on life, love, and happiness, all while learning to feel a little better about being an alien--based on the enormously popular Twitter account, @jonnysun. Here is the unforgettable story of Jomny, a lonely alien ,who for the first time ever, finds a home on our planet after learning that earthlings can feel lonely too. Jomny finds friendship in a bear tired of other creatures running away in fear, an egg struggling to decide what to hatch into, an owl working its way to being wise, a tree feeling stuck in one place, a tadpole coming to terms with turning into a frog, a dying ghost, apuppy unable to express itself, and many more. Through this story of a lost, lonely and confused alien finding friendship, acceptance, and love among the creatures of Earth, we will all learn how to be a little more human. And for all of us earth-bound creatures here on this planet, we can all be reminded that sometimes, it takes an outsider to help us see ourselves for who we truly are.

Sometimes uplifting, sometimes sad, sometimes thought provoking. A good look at our relationship to our thoughts, to each other, and to mortality. I felt a little less lonely after reading it.

Execution is nifty, I was drawn to it. Conception is nutty, may inspire or sooth certain personalities or cultural upbringings. Too childish even for kids?

This is a philosophical picture book for adults. It's sometimes simple, most times tender and sentimental, and often thought provoking. Beware--it may give you enough insight into the idea of others that you'll find yourself unexpectedly sympathizing with a bee just before it stings you. These things can happen. Well worth the quick read if you feel like being a better aliebn.

Adorable and touching, if not a little sappy. But I personally think a little sappiness is good, and thoroughly enjoyed this quick-moving comic.

Cute, quick, and unexpectedly touching read about a naive alien who comes to Earth to study humans, mistakenly takes every living thing he encounters to be a human, and learns about life, friendship, and happiness in the process of his explorations.
Can be taken as just a cute story (the simple illustrations are adorable, everyone speaks fluent Typo, and there is humor sprinkled throughout) or as a philosophical exploration on appreciating existence.

It's the cutest collection of existential crises, ever.

Here is the unforgettable story of Jomny, a lonely alien who, for the first time ever, finds a home on our planet after learning that earthlings can feel lonely too.

I really enjoyed this book. Invoked laughter, sadness, empathy and longing. It looks like a kids book, and it is kid friendly; it also has deep existential topics, followed by short comedic relief.
I recommend this book, especially to those going through relationship hardships or philosophically minded.

I love this book so much! This might be my book of the year - the one that everyone gets for Christmas!

A really sweet read about friendship and trying to fit in. Once you get used to the spelling quirks, it's a fun book and good for all ages.

A refreshing, quick, delightful book which engaged the mind as well as our understanding of the world around us. And it's funny to think that an alien thought everything but humans were humans.
