MECHANICSBURG, Pa. - June 29, 2014 - PRLog -- Sunbury Press has released Joanne Risso's latest childrens book "My Mom Is an Alien," dealing with immigration in a stimulating way. Dylan Matukaitis provided the illustrations.

About the Book:
My mom says she is an alien, but I am not so sure. She does sound funny when she speaks, and she eats weird food. Sometimes I think I see antennae sticking out the top of her head. She does not drive a spaceship, though, just a minivan. How can I really tell if she is an alien or not? You be the judge!

My Mom Is an Alien humorously explores the concept of immigration to the USA from the perspective from an Australian woman.

About the Author

Joanne L.S. Risso was born and raised in Gippsland, Australia.  She never had a pet platypus, but she did have a pet kangaroo named Fred when she was a girl. Joanne was classed as having ‘alien status’ by the U.S. government when she first immigrated to the U.S.A. She lives with her husband and four children in Central Pennsylvania. Please visit www.joannerisso.com to learn more about the author, who does not really have green skin or own a spaceship, though she does sound funny when she speaks.
