Sissa is a little girl who embarks on an adventure after an alien spaceship lands one night in her backyard. At first, Sissa believes she may have just had an elaborate dream, but when she finds an alien in her bedroom the next day, she realizes the spaceship encounter was real. Sissa experiences a journey with her new alien friend, which includes the chance to fly an alien spaceship and view her neighborhood from above in new children’s book, “Sweet Dreams Sissa” (published by Trafford Publishing).

The story was originally written by author Ann M. Allen when she was 9. During the author’s deployment in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, she was inspired to adapt the story. Beneath the fantastical space adventure of a girl and her alien companion is a story that shows how two people from different worlds can form the deepest bond two friends can have.

“The search for life outside of our earth appeals to many people, as well as how to create friendship between people who are dissimilar in their appearance, language, and culture,” Allen says.

An excerpt from “Sweet Dreams Sissa”:
It was late at night, but Sissa was still awake, reading a book. I guess I should stop reading and go to sleep. It’s ten o’clock, she thought. It’s well past my bedtime. Sissa leaned over to turn off the lamp on her nightstand when she noticed a bright light coming from outside of her bedroom window. She got out of bed and looked out the window and into her backyard. The light appeared to be moving quickly toward her. Then the light stopped, up in the air, and hovered above the grass in the backyard.
