But when their rocket is sabotaged, Omar and his friends have to use their expertise in science and mysteries to find the culprit.

When Omar and his friends start investigating, the hints they overhear and clues they find lead them to an alarming conclusion—it must be aliens!

Omar has a huge imagination, but saving his teacher from aliens seems far-fetched even to him. He’s going to need out-of-this-world creative thinking and a huge spirit of adventure to solve this mystery!

The first book in the exciting middle-grade series starring a Muslim boy with a huge imagination—now in paperback!

Welcome to the imaginative brain of Omar!

Omar and his family have just moved, and he is NOT excited about starting at a new school. What if the work is too hard or the kids are mean or the teacher is a zombie alien?!

But when Omar makes a new best friend, things start looking up. That is, until a Big Mean Bully named Daniel makes every day a nightmare! Daniel even tells Omar that all Muslims are going to be kicked out of the country . . . Could that possibly be true?

Luckily, Omar’s enormous imagination and goofy family help him get through life’s ups and downs.
