The illustrated story of a lonely alien sent to observe Earth, where he meets all sorts of creatures with all sorts of perspectives on life, love, and happiness, while learning to feel a little better about himselfbased on the enormously popular Twitter account.Here is the unforgettable story of Jomny, an alien sent to study Earth. Always feeling apart, even among his species, Jomny feels at home for the first time among the earthlings he meets. There is a bear tired of other creatures running in fear, an egg struggling to decide what to hatch into, a turtle hiding itself by learning camouflage, a puppy struggling to express its true feelings, and many more.The characters are unique and inventivebees think long and hard about what love means, birds try to eat the sun, nothingness questions its own existence, a ghost comes to terms with dying, and an introverted hedgehog slowly lets Jomny see its artistic insecurities. At the same time, Jomnys curious presence allows these characters to open up to him in ways they were never able to before, revealing the power of somebody who is just there to listen.Everyones a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too is also the story behind the widely-shared and typo-filled @jonnysun twitter account. Since the beginning, Sun intentionally tweeted from an outsiders perspective, creating a truly distinct voice. Now, that outsider has taken shape in the character of Jomny, who observes Earth with the same intelligent, empathetic, and charmingly nave voice that won over his fans on social media. New fans will find it organic, and old fans will delight at seeing the clever words that made them fans in the first place.Through this story of a lost, lonely and confused Alien finding friendship, acceptance, and love among the animals and plants of Earth, we will all learn how to be a little more human. And for all the earth-bound creatures here on this planet, we will all learn how sometimes, it takes an outsider to help us see ourselves for who we truly are....

Everyone's a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too Reviews
this book made me want to have an existential crisis but,,,the graphics were adorable so i'm not made
p.s. finals are killing me and THESE are the type of books I need. quick, adorable graphics, puns, mildly distributing quotes. how much better can life hey
Guys, read this. It's like philosophy meets self help meets a whole lot of puns. Honestly, after what happened last week, this kind of short book was exactly what the fuck I needed - Aliebn is a super short, super easy read that’s also incredibly positive.
The tone is this strange mix of nihilism and optimism that totally works, and though the book remains super light, it doesn't stray from dark stuff. I honestly feel like all my faith in humanity was saved by this one, singular book, because ho ...more
This book is like some sort of strange mashup of self help, graphic novel, and philosophy text all mushed into one. Highly enjoyed!
Surprisingly emotional, especially if you’ve ever lost someone close to you.
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 upon the life beyond his and along the way, learn ...more
This book manages to be existential, irreverent, and adorable. It's the story of Jomny (an aliebn) who lands on Earth to study humabns but ends up meeting all sorts of animals including a snail, a tree, bees, a bear, a beaver, otters, etc., who teach their newfound aliebn friend all sorts of important life lessons. Best of all - it's a sweet relief for tired eyes with its low-key art style and short conversations. Definitely pick up a copy.
The owl(s) and I are kindred spirits.
this was delightful
