In the book written for older kids, Malcom has to deal with his family problems, find new friends, find out who he really wants to be, and of course, deal with a hoard of invading aliens. Easy peasy.

  • What kind of superpowers do you want or already have? 
  • Malcolm makes new friends, are they friends that his family would like? 
  • Kleks. Fight or run?
  • What are your favourite memories?
