“Yelfrick and Omek have been best frints since they were little blobbies.” The language these two little aliens from the planet Boborp speak is sort of like English. But there are just enough near-misses to remind us that they are not quite like us. Their behaviors, however, are completely recognizable. “Frints on Boborp have been known to use their teef and not their words.” The two are shown as pink and purple blob-like creatures with long tails and sharp teeth (or teef). They mostly get along except when one of them refuses to give his frint a turp driving his new spossip. Children who like their humor served with a healthy dose of goofiness will enjoy the wordplay in this scifi picture book. (Ages 3–6)
