    I live under a rock and had never heard of Jonny Sun's Twitter account. After checking it out, I'm a fan of the intellectual wit and the succinctness of what he packs into a tweet. That as a long-form comic, however, slightly loses it's appeal.There are some very tender moments and illuminating ideas, but I occasionally found it jumbled and half-baked. It's very much the aliebn version of "The Little Prince" - our protagonist observes and remarks...

    So much more than "a book"; a new way of looking at the world.(Full disclosure: I received a physical ARC for review through Goodreads and an electronic galley through Edelweiss.)Everyone's a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too: A Book fell into my life just when I needed it. I recently lost someone very close to me, and Jomny Sun's adorable illustrations, juxtaposed with his insightful AF observations, brought me not just momentary distraction from my g...

    I have never heard of Jomny Sun, nor his twitter feed, @jonnysun, and after having read everyone's a aliebn when ur a aliebn too, I feel like I've been missing out on something fairly amazing. everyone's a aliebn opens with the alien Jomny being dropped off on Earth, to study the planet and what it means to be an earthling. Never feeling like a part of his people, Jomny at first feels lost on Earth, but as he learns what it means to be an earthli...

    If you haven't followed @jonnysun on his socials, go right now and do it. I promise you won't regret this. This book... Is just good. It is filled with so much good. It tells a story of an alien coming to earth to learn about humans. But it is a journey into the human psyche. What it means to be happy. And what is life all about. Just read it. Love it. Cherish it.

    Pretty much everyone feels like an alien at some time in their life, like they just don’t quite fit in and that’s the premise of this charming little illustrated book by author Jomny Sun based on his twitter account. Jomny, a lonely little alien, one who is just a little different from others on his planet, has been left on earth to observe the inhabitants of the planet. Although he never finds the humans he was expected to observe, he soon b...

    Best use of mispelled words ever. If you're not a little bit better at being human after you read this, then you did it wrong. Try again.

    A beautiful story of loneliness and self-discovery framed as a scientific expedition by a small little extraterrestrial who shares a name with the author. Jomny is sent by his pretentious peers to observe humanity, but he ends up interacting instead with the local wildlife. However, the author seems to project human archetypes onto the creatures, every species exemplifying a certain one, so that in fact Jomny is studying humanity without knowing ...

    I preordered this book on a whim, probably two days after the option for a preorder came up. Then I toyed with the idea of cancelling because maybe it was just a twitter fad and what if it's not good. But the need to support authors, and the consistent flow of content from Johnny kept me intrigued, and next thing I knew, there was a package on my front porch with a sweet lil alien on a grand mission to learn about humabns.I brought it with me to ...

    WHAT DID I JUST READ?! Wow what a perfect little creation!If you have a quick moment to sit down and read this book it will only take you 30 minutes and it will be one of the best 30 minutes you've ever spent. Blunt, honest, fair, pithy, and beautifully bittersweet, everyone's a aliebn when ur a aliebn too is the story of a lonely alien coming to Earth to learn the ways of "humabns." Jomny meets all kinds of friends during his journey and is lear...

    It's cute. There are some lines that particularly resonated with me as I was reading the book. But the entire time I couldn't help but feel confused. Why wasn't I crying, as other reviewers did? Why wasn't I chuckling, feeling an intense pain in my heart, cheering on the characters? I don't think I'm completely apathetic, or I probably wouldn't have bothered to even read Everyone's a Aliebn in the first place. The typos, the juvenile conversation...

    Oh my gosh, where do I even begin? I got into this thinking it'd just be cute, but it was so much more! Grammar jokes! Puns! Cute hilarious moments! Deep and insightful commentary! Sadness and loneliness! Tender and warm moments! UGH, I loved this so much, and I'm just mad that it took me literally half the book to realize that the bee was spelling out things BECAUSE IT'S A SPELLING BEE. A quick read that I highly recommend. Note: Got this at a b...

    Strange, cute book. Like a children's book gone slightly awry, somewhere. An alien encounters our planet, his mission to learn all he can about the humans. He meets a lot of humans, like a lovely tree, a porcupine, an egg. The story gets weird and existential and dark. It's bright and funny and talks about all kinds of fears and concerns. It's not what I was expecting after following him on Twitter. But it's good.

    This book was incredibly entertaining. It was just downright adorable and full of cute characters and interesting interactions. I loved the beaver, but I think my favourite conversation was with the onion, though he really only made the one appearance, it was amazing. It was an easy and short read and well done.

    Aside from Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes, I don’t know of anyone else who’s able to capture what it’s like to see the world through the eyes of a child (or in this case an aliebn) in a way that’s profoundly insightful and often forgotten as we grow up. (And Jomny Sun is hilarious). As someone else said about him, “he’s like jane goodall, and we’re the apes.”

    Reminiscent of The Little Prince, Twitter philosophe Jomny Sun's aliebn tale explores the meaning of life through delicately simple drawings, carefully crafted misspellings, and wholehearted acceptance that sometimes life is sad and everyone's gonna die but, you know, also there are things like bouncy castles and eggs and love. Touching, radiant, and completely human.

    I did not expect to cry as much as I did while reading this book. Jomny Sun is a powerful storyteller that can make you feel all the emotions in a single page. The inside covers or "activity log" had some of the best quotes. I will recommend this book to everyone, and I am sure I will be rereading it soon.

    This is a sweet book, and strings a narrative out some of jomny's best tweets. I feel like this book would have been a great lifeline for me as a sad teenager, but I feel a little too old and/or fully formed for it now.

    This book broke my heart, put it back together and lit a candle in it. Jomny Sun's work addresses the wealth of human experience and how lucky we are that it does.
