When a UFO approaches a town, panic ensues:
Why did they come?
What do they want?
Why are they here?
The townspeople scramble to secure themselves against the impending invasion. Only Stephen Sprout, the smallish kid from Garnet Lane (who isn't old enough for a two-wheeler and is rumored to sleep with a night-light), looks past the terror engulfing his town to learn the real reason why They Came.
Mark Tatulli uses bold colors and cartoon modern style art in this charming tale about acceptance, sharing, and speaking up for what is right.
