Collection of comics from the instagram sensation of the same name.

This book collects an assortment of the webcomics that fit different topics, like family and friendship. All of the characters are extraterrestrials that are going about the same day-to-day activities that you and I do. What makes these comics so wonderful is that:

1) the characters are crazy adorable in their innocence and kindness, and

2) they describe what they do in a literal sense.

The humor really comes from realizing what they are talking about. For example, in one comic a parent says to the other, "The offspring has applied wax to this." while holding up a piece of paper. You quickly realize that they are talking about their child having made a drawing with crayons (way funnier when you see it yourself). Even with it's simplicity, the author is able to make commentary on a lot of the things we may take for granted.

Great for anyone who has or hasn't read these online, and it's a quick read that will be sure to make you smile.
