The Christmas Wedding Gift: An Alien Orphan  
Jan. 1, 2014
Author:  Esther Joseph
Category:  Children's: Middle grade
Description:  An alien orphan hides on a New Jersey charity farm
He discovers his Venus power belt can be energized
with harmonica music which keeps him alive. But a
sudden lightening storm discharges its energy.
Almost dead, three boys rescue and hide him in
a church. Meanwhile Harmey learns orphanage boys
are being worked as slaves. He plants power stars
on the boys foreheads at night. Headmaster
Greeley is astounded when the boys answer class
questions with photographic minds. Greeley starves
them for cheating in class. Harmey secretly uses
his power belt to set up the cruel headmaster.
This gives the boys many situations of slapstick
tomfoolery. Older boys are rarely adopted. Buying
a horse ordered by Greeley to be slaughtered,
a young employee trains it. Harmey puts a power
star on the horse at a county sulky race. The
winning purse helps a kind young farm couple wed
on Christmas Day. The three boys are adopted by
the happy couple. Catharsis from the humor
develops the boys real intelligence. Laughter they
learn is healing and the story teaches all children how
to handle any bully.
Rights available:  All
Other information:  Debut novelette of 150 pages with six more in the series.
Harmey takes the boys next to the Kennedy Space
station and saves the astronauts from disaster.
They learn cooperation and taking directions
from adults is a key to human survival.
