This sweet little graphic novel is surprisingly full of touching moments and quotes. It is not for everyone and the narrative thread is not strong, but the main character is endearing and full of insights into humanity and the world in which we live. It’s a quick read, and perhaps requires a reread after to catch and retain some of the more thought-provoking lines. It is also worth it to read the “log entries” on the inside covers. This story is silly, inspiring, and might make you question the meaning of life. The cutesy illustrations are well matched with the subject matter. I enjoyed the perspective and introspection this book brought to my day, and will have fun as I continue thinking about my world from a aliebn’s point of view.

If you know me, I've probably gifted you a copy of this book. It seems simple and childlike, but that's what makes it all the more profound. This one sits with you though happy and sad. A great book for empathy building and awareness.

Sometimes uplifting, sometimes sad, sometimes thought provoking. A good look at our relationship to our thoughts, to each other, and to mortality. I felt a little less lonely after reading it.

Execution is nifty, I was drawn to it. Conception is nutty, may inspire or sooth certain personalities or cultural upbringings. Too childish even for kids?

Cute, quick, and unexpectedly touching read about a naive alien who comes to Earth to study humans, mistakenly takes every living thing he encounters to be a human, and learns about life, friendship, and happiness in the process of his explorations.
Can be taken as just a cute story (the simple illustrations are adorable, everyone speaks fluent Typo, and there is humor sprinkled throughout) or as a philosophical exploration on appreciating existence.

It's the cutest collection of existential crises, ever.

Here is the unforgettable story of Jomny, a lonely alien who, for the first time ever, finds a home on our planet after learning that earthlings can feel lonely too.

I really enjoyed this book. Invoked laughter, sadness, empathy and longing. It looks like a kids book, and it is kid friendly; it also has deep existential topics, followed by short comedic relief.
I recommend this book, especially to those going through relationship hardships or philosophically minded.

I love this book so much! This might be my book of the year - the one that everyone gets for Christmas!

A really sweet read about friendship and trying to fit in. Once you get used to the spelling quirks, it's a fun book and good for all ages.

A refreshing, quick, delightful book which engaged the mind as well as our understanding of the world around us. And it's funny to think that an alien thought everything but humans were humans.
