Spaceheadz (Simon & Schuster, 2010)
Casey and Steven are also the Digital Team for Jon Scieszka’s middle grade series Spaceheadz. (Yup, same Scieszka.) It’s about a couple of aliens from the planet Spacheadz who have disguised themselves as two 5th graders and a class hamster. No, they are not especially intelligent. It doesn’t help that they’ve learned everything they know about Earth from TV and advertising.
And essential part of the spirit of the series is media literacy. Casey and Steven’s job is to develop the online world of all the characters. They maintain Major Fluffy’s blog and Twitter account, a Facebook profile, Flickr and YouTube accounts for the characters, stock their teacher’s website with fake 5th grade art, manage all the madness that is spaceheadz.com, and repeatedly laugh themselves stupid while putting up photos and videos on the Anti-Alien Agency website.
