Space and Aliens for Early Readers
When Hap sells his whole family to the aliens, he must figure out how to get them all back. And meet space-school attendee Bob and his alien bestie Beep, who make the perfect team.
Paul Noth is a writer and artist whose cartoons appear regularly in The New Yorker and occasionally in other publications, including The Wall Street Journal. He was a regular guest writer for “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” for which he created the cartoon “Pale Force,” and was an animation consultant for Saturday Night Live. He has also written for CBS’s “The Late Late Show” and other television programs. His children’s book, “How to Sell Your Family to the Aliens,” is forthcoming in April 2018.
Author-illustrator Jonathan Roth is a public elementary school art teacher in Montgomery County who likes reading, writing, drawing, cycling and napping. His humorous sci-fi chapter book series, “Beep and Bob,” debuts spring 2018. It is set aboard an elementary school in space, where children are forced to go on field trips to such hazardous destinations as dwarf planets and black holes. Any resemblance to his own school is purely coincidental.
Though Jonathan has never left Earth himself, he has met four of the astronauts who have gone to the moon. He lives in Rockville, Md., with his wife and two cats.

Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.
