One of the most beloved TV shows of all time is now a sweet, silly, sci-fi bedtime story. In the X-Files: Earth Children are Weird, best pals Dana (Scully) and Fox (Mulder) have pitched a tent in the backyard for a sleepover, but the night is full of strange sounds, lights and shadows. Surely there’s a rational, scientific explanation for everything… or is there? With beautiful illustrations of pint-sized Dana and Fox, this humorous and not-scary-at-all story will introduce the cult TV show to an entire new generation of fans.
This book was a really quick read but it entertained me all the same anyways. I grew up being terrified over the opening theme song of the original TV show so when I saw this come out I immediately borrowed it from the library to check what’s up.
The story wasn’t anything too spectacular, with young Dana and Fox going on camping at their backyard and trying to make sense of all the “clues” that there are aliens all around them. It ends with such an adorable twist that made me chuckle.
What caught my attention more though was the art style and the color palette that the artist used. It portrayed the atmosphere of the story without making it too scary or less appealing to children. I definitely recommend this especially since younger me would’ve repeatedly devoured this and the art work.
