Fifty states! The class has to learn them all, but Adam barely remembers five. Even Spork knows more—and he’s from a different planet! At least Adam has baseball . . . and yubble, the cosmic new sport that Spork is teaching everyone. Why can’t learning the states be as easy as playing ball?

Praise for Alien in the Outfield:
"No Place Like Space is a charming story that practically reads itself, with funky black and white illustrations and tons of action, dialogue, humor, and character development. Additional titles in this exciting, addictive juvenile adventure series that are also highly recommended include: Alien in the Outfield, May the Votes Be with You, and Money Doesn’t Grow on Mars."—Children’s Bookwatch
