A 20th anniversary edition of the classic, bestselling story of a boy and the alien who happens to live in his nose.
How do you shut up when your nose is doing all the talking?
Alan is not big or strong. He hates playing soccer and can barely keep up in math class. Moreover, he's fodder for every bully for miles around. But all that changes the day Norbert, an alien from Jupiter, comes to earth on an exploration mission and moves into . . . Alan's nose. Soon Alan isn't acting like himself, but is Norbert really to blame? Loud, pushy and hilarious, Norbert teaches Alan to stand up for himself, even when the odds are stacked against him.
