Almanac of Alien Encounters
Do your kids know what a UFO is? Have they ever seen one? Have you ever briefed them on the subject of your investigations?
Let best-selling children’s book author Eric Elfman do it for you. Elfman’s
new book, ALMANAC OF ALIEN ENCOUNTERS, just published by Random House,
outlines the fascinating history of UFOs in a chronological overview that
kids will find gripping.
The Almanac of Alien Encounters is an in-depth, thought-provoking look at
classic unsolved sightings and close encounters with extraterrestrials, along
with other related phenomena such as ancient astronauts, crop circles, the
Face on Mars, cattle mutilations, and much more. The book also details the
U.S. government’s official response to UFO reports, as well as a look at
science’s more cautious approach to alien encounters: SETI, the on-going
Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence.
"I have never seen a book on the young adult level which provides so much
information to the young reader in such a simple, yet adult-like, manner. The
book gives an excellent overview of the early flying saucer sightings, from
prehistory right up to the present. Having a section on what to do if you
see a UFO is encouraging to us UFO investigators."
-- Raymond W. Cecot, Organizational Director, IRAAP
