CASE FILE: The Third (and fourth and fifth and sixth . . . ) Unsittable<br> <br> SUMMARY: Gabby Duran, Associate 4118-25125A, Sitter to the Unsittables, has proven herself an integral member of A.L.I.E.N.--the Association Linking Intergalactics and Earthlings as Neighbors. She has amassed an impressive roster of alien clients, and is a trusted babysitter among humans and intergalactics alike. We here at A.L.I.E.N. are proud to call her one of our greatest success stories, and believe she is ready to take on more responsibility. <br> Which is why Gabby has now been entrusted with the care of one of our most volatile charges. His name is One and he's a member of the Tridecalleon species. While One and his parents present the appearance of a normal, human family, they have some intriguing qualities that make caring for their young a unique challenge. And while, under normal circumstances, inviting outsiders to aid an agent with an Unsittable job would be strictly forbidden, we have decided to forgive Gabby calling in her friends Satchel and Zee in this case. After all, a babysitter only has so many hands. (Unless, of course, he or she is a Flarknartian.) <br> Making this highly unstable situation an even greater challenge? Gabby has also been assigned to protect a very dangerous object--one that, if it falls into the wrong hands, could cause the destruction of Earth itself. It remains to be seen whether Gabby and her friends are able to handle the demands of eleven . . . wait, twelve . . . no, thirteen babies, while ensuring the safety of the world at the same time. All we can do is wait, and hope, and trust. And ready our escape pods. Praise for Gabby Duran and the Unsittables<br> <br> "Positively intergalactic."<br> -Kirkus Reviews<br> <br> "Goofy inventions, wild plot, and peppy dialogue...[A] briskly plotted crowd-pleaser."<br> -Booklist<br> <br> "The humorous details and quick plot make this a fun book for reluctant and avid readers alike."<br> -School Library Journal<br> <br> <br> Praise for Gabby Duran: Troll Control <br> <br> "There are plenty of cool ideas to borrow here about the perfect babysitting backpack that will save all sorts of situations."<br> -The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books<br> <br> "Remind[s] preteen readers that it's cool for girls to be passionate about STEM." -Kirkus Reviews

Horn Book Review

Gabby, trusted sitter for A.L.I.E.N. (Association Linking Intergalactics and Earthlings as Neighbors), has her work cut out for her when her latest extraterrestrial charge multiplies into thirteen babies. With help from friends Satchel and Zee, Gabby provides excellent childcare while also stopping a race of narcissistic aliens from destroying Earth. Zany, good-natured high jinks abound in this third installment of the sci-fimeetsBabysitters Club series. (c) Copyright 2018. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
