When the movie E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial was released in 1982, it enchanted millions of kids and surpassed Star Wars to become the highest-grossing film of all time. Now he s back and rendered in the fun, colourful, retro illustration styles of illustrator Kim Smith. This storybook follows all the basic beats of the film: After E.T. is stranded on Earth, he takes refuge with Elliott, a lonely young boy in need of a friend. As Elliott and his siblings help E.T. phone home and make it back to his spaceship against all odds, they learn important lessons about courage, friendship, and the power of the imagination. It s the perfect read-along story for children and their parents.
