Description

A hilarious--and slimy--alien adventure (set on Earth) that the bestselling author of Zombie Chasers, John Kloepfer, calls "fast paced, out-of-this-world fun!"

When Margot Blumenthal removes a bright blue slug alien attached to Mateo Flores's back, the school play co-stars know it's definitely not going to be a regular day at West Cove Middle School.

They reluctantly team up and soon discover that the mayor and countless other adults, including Mateo's dad, are infected--which means that West Cove, and possibly all of Earth, is in danger.

What will they (and their new scientist friend) do? Ditch class and protect humankind, of course--because one unexcused absence doesn't matter when the world is at stake!

This stand-alone middle grade novel is fun, silly, and full of adventure. Young readers will speed through it...if they can stop laughing long enough to turn the page.

Review quote

"[An] offbeat and highly enjoyable read...likely to entice even reluctant readers."--School Library Journal "The end of the world has rarely been quite this much fun....[S]ure to appeal to both avid and reluctant readers. A most enjoyable apocalypse."--Kirkus Reviews "The genuine rapport the two middle-schoolers develop along the way gives this story a surprising amount of heart...The book's wacky humor and explosive action will appeal to fans of quirky science fiction, and even non-SF readers will appreciate the charming young heroes."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "A suspenseful, thoroughly entertaining comedy...delectable."--Booklist (starred review) "Margot and Mateo Save the World is a nonstop, action-packed race to halt an alien invasion, like Robert Rodriguez's The Faculty, but for middle schoolers. Fast paced, out-of-this-world fun!"--John Kloepfer, author of The Zombie Chasers series and the Galaxy's Most Wanted trilogy
