How do you shut up when your nose is doing all the talking?

Alan is not big or strong. He hates playing soccer and can barely keep up in math class. Moreover he's fodder for every bully for miles around. But all that changes the day Norbert, an alien from Jupiter, comes to earth on an exploration mission and moves into - Alan's nose. Soon Alan isn't acting like himself, but is Norbert really to blame? Loud, pushy and hilarious, Norbert teaches Alan to stand up for himself, even when the odds are stacked against him.

This novel tells the story of a boy who tries to deal with every day problems, since the coming of a small alien who lives in his nose, Norbert. Norbert helps Alan with his problems by showing him what courage is like and how to stand up to his problems. A really great book.

Alan Dingwall, a boy 13 years of age, have to deal with problems every day in his life (Bullies, a girl he likes, etc.). He was found in the hospital, because he somehow fell into the river and was knocked unconscious. He tries to piece everything together from the story of the tiny alien who lives in his nose, Norbert, and how he helped dealing with Alan's problems through hilarious ways. He tells the readers of the story from the very beginning, since he forgot how he fell into the river himself. Norbert had helped Alan to deal with bullies and he got everyone's attention, including Miranda's (the girl he has a crush on). One of the bullies, Prudence, wanted revenge for the insults thrown by Norbert (she thinks it was Alan). She saw Alan fall into the river by tripping over a collie dog, and she thought Alan got what he deserved but she heard a voice saying she should help him. When Alan recovers from the hospital, the bullies' group had basically been separated and Prudence told Alan they won't mess with him anymore. When Norbert thought it was time, he had left Alan and returned to Jupiter.
