    First, this front cover, while cool, is misleading While the story appeared to be a kid s version of SF pulp magazines of yesteryear, the series had grownphilosophical and sophisticated by the third and fourth books Anyhow, this is just the cover, the story is pure magic Coville manages to tie up all, or most, of his loose threads into pretty bows We readers have grown to love the aliens as friends and there is a bigger picture to contemplate What happens to our favorite sixth graders First, this front cover, while cool, is misleading While the story appeared to be a kid s version of SF pulp magazines of yesteryear, the series had grownphilosophical and sophisticated by the third and fourth books Anyhow, this is just the cover, the story is pure magic Coville manages to tie up all, or most, of his loose threads into pretty bows We readers have grown to love the aliens as friends and there is a bigger picture to contemplate What happens to our favorite sixth graders and the aliens You must read to find out Coville had created another gem

    The finale of the My Teacher series does not fail to deliver.Peter is now reunited with Susan and Duncan and together the 3 of them with 2 of their alien teachers are tasked with convincing the Interplanetary Council that Earth is worth saving.The kids soon find it is hard to make such a case The world is divided War Famine Hatred Destruction of the planet This book was written 25 years ago and it is sad that most of what is seen as failures of the human race still exist.The kids and the The finale of the My Teacher series does not fail to deliver.Peter is now reunited with Susan and Duncan and together the 3 of them with 2 of their alien teachers are tasked with convincing the Interplanetary Council that Earth is worth saving.The kids soon find it is hard to make such a case The world is divided War Famine Hatred Destruction of the planet This book was written 25 years ago and it is sad that most of what is seen as failures of the human race still exist.The kids and the teachers are working against the clock to save their planet But is it worth saving Along the way, Peter learnsabout Earth, himself, and his father, leading to him making a decision he never thought he would have to make.Overall, I really enjoyed this series Coville presents a fun, entertaining set of 4 books that on the surface are for kids who maybe just wonder if that adult in their life is from another planet what kid doesn t think adults seem as if they are from another world But deep down their is a message We can change we need to change But will we Maybe we need to make that decision before someone or something else makes it for us

    My Teacher Flunked the Planet by Bruce CovilleMost hopeful book I ve read in a long time I recommend reading the series in order, and having all four on hand because one won t want to stop I have often said that children, and my high school students, give me hope for our future They do indeed I m not going to give anydetailstoo good to spoil Don t let the JF designation stop you, read it alone if you have no youngsters to read it with.

    I thought Coville s anaysis of Earth was poignant I don t subscribe to his philosophy at the end, however, of humans being one mind I believe we are one in Christ, but not one subconcious I m giving this five stars because of the emotions he evoked with his synopsis of Earth and his desire within the book to offer a solution My kids enjoyed this series as well.

    This book is called My teacher flunked the planet by Bruce Coville I liked this book because it involved aliens and was something different than a normal book that I would pick I think this book was interesting, but not my favorite.

  7. Elizabeth says:

    The end of this series is epic and, like, totally mind blowing for me as a kid Probably even still today if I re read.

  8. Alison Condliffe says:

    Thought provoking book which dealt with many issues facing our world Great way to end the series and support given to teachers.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This is actually a review of both My Teacher is an Alien series as a whole and the last book in the series The series is somewhat repetitive since the first three books cover some of the same events, just told from different perspectives The fourth book, My Teacher Flunked the Planet, then picks up the story and finishes it, mostly from the perspective of Peter, the main character of the 3rd book The final installment is darker than the others, as the children learn about all kinds of atrocit This is actually a review of both My Teacher is an Alien series as a whole and the last book in the series The series is somewhat repetitive since the first three books cover some of the same events, just told from different perspectives The fourth book, My Teacher Flunked the Planet, then picks up the story and finishes it, mostly from the perspective of Peter, the main character of the 3rd book The final installment is darker than the others, as the children learn about all kinds of atrocities committed by people on Earth and why the aliens want to destroy the planet There is also a not so subtle condemnation of television as something that was created to slow down technological development but got out of control and is now to blame for many of Earth s problems Since this is a children s book, of course it endsor less happily in that Earth is not destroyed, but the idea that all humans are one and not individuals is strange and I m not sure it s an idea that will be understood by all children reading the book Still, I think many children would enjoy the adventure and space travel alien themes of the series, as long as parents teachers librarians don t think the abduction theme surgery atrocity themes will scare young readers
