Everyone's a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too
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 himself—based 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 inventive—bees 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, Jomny’s 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.

Everyone’s 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 outsider’s 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 naïve 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.

    "ITS JUST LIKE JOMNY SAID. WHEN TWO ALIEBNS FIND EACH OTHER IN A STRANGE PLACE, IT FEELS A LITTLE MORE LIKE HOME"I love and adore @jonnysun's social media presence, so of course I was excited about him writing a book. But this book - though it's adorably goofy drawings and purposeful m...

    It's cute. There are some lines that particularly resonated with me as I was reading the book. But the entire time I couldn't help but feel confused. Why wasn't I crying, as other reviewers did? Why wasn't I chuckling, feeling an intense pain in my heart, cheering on the characters? I ...

    This is a sweet book, and strings a narrative out some of jomny's best tweets. I feel like this book would have been a great lifeline for me as a sad teenager, but I feel a little too old and/or fully formed for it now. ...

    I preordered this book on a whim, probably two days after the option for a preorder came up. Then I toyed with the idea of cancelling because maybe it was just a twitter fad and what if it's not good. But the need to support authors, and the consistent flow of content from Johnny kept ...

    Strange, cute book. Like a children's book gone slightly awry, somewhere. An alien encounters our planet, his mission to learn all he can about the humans. He meets a lot of humans, like a lovely tree, a porcupine, an egg. The story gets weird and existential and dark. It's bright and ...

    This book was incredibly entertaining. It was just downright adorable and full of cute characters and interesting interactions. I loved the beaver, but I think my favourite conversation was with the onion, though he really only made the one appearance, it was amazing. It was an easy an...
