Alien Next Door by Joey Spiotta

Book Description: 
See a new, caring side to the legendary science fiction monster as he tends to Jonesy the cat, endeavors to keep his house cleaner than the Nostromo, and searches for his place on a cold, new, alien world: Earth. From facehuggers to feather dusters, discover how the perfect killing machine relaxes after a day of scaring space marines.

Many years back, Joey was asked by a friend of noted Alien artist H.R. Giger if he wanted to collaborate on an Alien inspired children's book. This comes after Giger had apparently seen Joey's print for a fake children's book, "Facehugs for Everyone." He had no idea Giger had a softer side, but there it was, and Joey hoped he would hear back from him. Unfortunately, the world had lost a legendary artist and Joey never heard back. Later though, he was asked to create his book, Alien Next Door, a book full of comical pokes at the Alien movies fans will want to see.

Here Joey introduces an alien who has moved to Earth for a break from all the problems of an alien planet to look after Jonesy the cat who gets laughingly fed Weyland Yutani cat food and Bishop Milk. Our cuddly alien has her own facehugger pal who starts out life as an egg she pushes around in a pram, patting its eggshell and when it's full grown, takes it for walks like a dog. All you have to imagine is that there's prime Yutani real estate on Earth, and this alien moves in. What more do you need to make you laugh out loud as you turn the pages?
