"Mixing science fiction and the realities of parenthood with a dose of humor, this imaginative program is sure to spark lively conversation." –Booklist
"... Barker, director of the Oscar-nominated animated film The Cat Came Back, has created another winner with Stranger invaders... the 'strange invaders' of the title are babies. Where do they come from, who will they become and how will they affect our lives? These are just some of the worries addressed by this very funny and clever cartoon... Highly recommended."--Library Journal
"Strange Invaders’ escalating mayhem is presented with a characteristically Canadian droll humor sure to bring smiles to the faces of audiences around the world." --Video Librarian
"This irresistible animated short...[is] a tad sinister...The film comes packaged with discussion questions for use after screening the film. One suggestion is to use it as a springboard for personal discussions about new babies. The Peanut baby in the film is such a comic exaggeration that it could help make new parents less shy about acknowledging their own hopes and fears regarding the baby. It might also be a good tool to help older children talk about a new baby brother or sister...This is an example of excellent animated storytelling. Highly Recommended." --Educational Media Reviews Online
