Illustrated by Sam Ricks

    About The Book

    In the third action-packed adventure of The DATA Set series, Dr. Bunsen uses his newest invention—the Bunsenmunicator 3000—to communicate with aliens.

    Earth to the DATA Set! HELP!

    When bizarre lights streak across the night sky, everyone in Newtonburg has a theory, but the DATA Set knows who is to blame: Dr. Bunsen. This time his newest invention speaks to aliens…and invites them down to Earth! Can the kids handle a close encounter with extraterrestrials and mysterious men in black to keep their town from being space-invaded?

    With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, The DATA Set chapter books are perfect for emerging readers.

    About The Author

    Ada Hopper has been extremely inventive ever since she was little. There was nothing that a rubber band and some tweezers couldn’t fix, no question that couldn’t be answered by scouring the library, and no way she wasn’t escaping over that back yard fence! Ada loves reading and writing because of all the fantastical worlds a good book can bring you to. When not working, Ada enjoys karaoke, spending time with her family, and going on the occasional adventure or two.
