I read a book as a kid and I am trying to find it for my nephew. In it, an infant is stolen by aliens and kept as a pet, and the older sibling(s) go on a rescue mission. I don't really remember much else about it.

I must have read it in late elementary school, so probably around 20 years ago. The scene that sticks in my mind is the older children looking through a window and seeing the baby sleeping.

I don't remember the aliens being malicious so much as indifferent.

I've been looking for this for a while, so if anyone can help I would really appreciate it.

  • Do you remember roughly when you read it? Rough range of years? – Jason Baker Apr 4 '15 at 0:00

    Any more detail on the aliens? Substitute with demons and you've got Darren Shan's The Demon Thief. – Fruitbat Apr 4 '15 at 8:34
  • I definitely see the similarities, but I don't remember the aliens being malicious so much as indifferent – sylv Apr 4 '15 at 16:05
