Sean Winger and his friend Olivia find an alien in a bottle-spaceship. The alien is hiding from another alien named Tagg Orien. He begs for help from Sean. In return, Sean asks for fire and glass, so he can fulfill his dream for being a glassblower. Will both their requests work out okay? I liked this book because it was funny, illustrative, and full of crazy twists and turns of all sorts! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060292814, Hardcover)

If Dinn Tauro hadn't shot Tagg Orion off the Inter-Dimensional Wheel, Tagg and his sidekick, Squeeto, would never have crashed on that nowhere planet called Earth. And Sean Winger would never have found the two extraterrestrials in a bottle on the beach.

Without the aliens Sean wouldn't have a hope of entering a glass sculpture in the Hollis Art Fair -- and winning a scholarship. That's all Sean really wants in this world. Sean just needs two things -- glass and fire. He knows his parents won't help. So when Tagg offers Sean three wishes in exchange for protecting him from Dinn Tauro, how can Sean refuse?

Could two extraterrestrials really hold the answers to Sean's yearnings? Or are they only taking him on an extraterrestrial ride?

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:10:23 -0400)

With the help of a star-gazing classmate and an unusual assortment of aliens from outer space, teenager Sean Winger tries to find a way to convince his parents to let him pursue his dream of becoming a glass blower.
