The Nose from Jupiter

by Richard Scrimger

Published by Tundra Books, 1998
156 pages
ISBN: 0-88776-428-2

Ages 9-12

Norbert has been living in 13-year-old alan's nose--yes, in Alan's nose--ever since arriving from Jupiter in his little space ship. When Alan talks to Norbert, people think he is talking to himself. Alan won't mention Norbert to the doctor, or to his parents. Even though they're divorced and his father lives far away in Vancouver, tey still argue, and this would only make things worse. No, Norbert is a secret. That Norbert thinks of Alan's nose as an apartment with several rooms and a garage is more than people will be able to take--until Norbert decides to assert himself. This fresh, funny, pun-filled, laid back story is a remarkable first novel by a Canadian author. CCBC categories: Fiction for Children.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
