EXCERPT:

      . . . “Listen, Johnny, we don’t have much time,” Flat-top said. “As we feared, your people have exploded their weapon. Your atmosphere will soon grow too toxic for us. We are departing.”
      “Okay, so, that’s good, right? For us? That you’re beating feet?”
       “I can offer you sanctuary, but you must come back inside our vessel now.”
      He reached for Johnny’s arm, but Johnny turned and—
      His house
      It had grown, it had to be at least sixty feet high. It reached into the cloudless sky like something from Jack and the Beanstalk. His knees buckled and Flat-top grabbed at him as if to drag him back to the panel.
      The porch door swung open with a mighty crash and there stood his own mother, now massive, terrifying, at least fifty feet tall! She scanned the horizon.
       Johnny!” she shouted, and the force of her voice knocked him flat on his back.
      “Oh, my gosh, oh, gosh,” Johnny blubbered. “Ma! Ma, down here!” He waved his arms.
      She froze and cocked her head. Then she bent over and stared down at him. The pores in her skin were like craters; her eyes were as big as the high school gymnasium
