When Richard Bickerstaff sits down to breakfast one morning, he gets the surprise of his life. An alien climbs out of his cereal bowl!

Aric, a tiny, wisecracking creature, has been freeze-dried and beamed to Earth in a cereal box, and he’s on an important mission. There’s an alien takeover in progress, and Aric needs Richard’s help to stop it—fast!

Racing against time, Richard and Aric battle a deadly enemy in a fiendishly clever disguise—he’s the cool new kid in Richard’s class!
