Interview with an Alien

In celebration of the release of Ace Hansen’s seriously funny middle grade story, JULIUS CAESAR BROWN AND THE GREEN GAS MYSTERY with MuseItUp Publishing, my girls got the opportunity to steal my blog and ask Ace a few questions about the book and what it’s like to be an alien.

Lyra: I love your picture. You look silly like me.
Ace: Are you green, too?

Lyra: Is it true that aliens communicate with their eyeballs?
Ace: Doesn’t everyone communicate with their eyeballs? ***rolls eyes***

Lyra: Do you speak any languages with each other?
Ace: We speak a secret language known only on my planet. That way you Earthlings don’t understand when we make fun of your funny skin and hair. 

Lyra: Does it sound something lie “jugga-jugga-jugga?”
Ace: Jugga, jugga, jugga? That’s the sound my belly makes when I’ve eaten several pounds of gummy worms!

Violeta: What is your planet like? Is it like Earth?
Ace: My planet is nothing like Earth. All the food on my planet is sweet. The rivers taste kinda like your grape soda and we have three suns. Our rain is orange and tastes like your mangoes. Our clouds are bright pink and it only rains at night. All of us have one baby every seven years. I have a pet wumblybumble. He doesn’t have legs, but bounces like a rubber ball. 

Lyra: What’s your spaceship like?
Ace: My spaceship is like a canoe with a bubble-like canopy on top and is it ever FAST! 

Lyra: What kind of food do you like to eat?
Ace: I love to eat gummy worms, of course!

Violeta: What’s your book about?
Ace: One day you Earthlings stop passing invisible gas and start farting green like us aliens and it causes chaos!!! Someone has to solve the mystery of the green gas!


Aliens, farts, and chaos! As you can tell, the book is a lot of fun for young readers, so my Lyra and Violeta are looking forward to the day they get to read it! In the meantime, thanks, Ace, and thanks for your questions, Violeta and Lyra!
