This is part of the inspiration for the solution the human children eventually come up with to the aliens' problem: if the aliens were willing to send more teachers like Broxholm, maybe the students could be taught to actually do something about all the violence. They would cure diseases, stop wars, end poverty, that kind of thing. Seeing them all together was plenty strange. See Starfish Aliens for plenty of aversions. Faster-Than-Light Travel : The aliens travel by "folding" space the details of which are conveniently skirted when the primary alien characters all admit they don't understand the physics of it. In Your Nature to Destroy Yourselves : So naturally the antagonistic aliens would like to destroy us first so they don't get caught in the mess.
In Your Nature to Destroy Yourselves : So naturally the antagonistic aliens would like to destroy us first so they don't get caught in the mess.

During this conversation, Miss Karpou is revealed to be the alien and identifies herself as Kreeblim. Bizarre Sexual Dimorphism : Subverted. If it ever gets hooked up to TV Tropes, the galaxy is probably doomed. Hey, at least they feel bad about it: when asked, one of the aliens explains that if they blow up the humans, the aliens will certainly not be singing songs about their glorious conquest that they won; instead, if they actually kill all the humans they will spend their time afterwards miserable and sorry that it had to come to that, mourning over what was lost and what might have been.

Stay with the Aliens : The first book ends with Peter Thompson deciding to go with Broxholm, since his father's indifferent to his existence and he believes no one will miss him. Peter, and two other human children from earlier books - the smart and sweet Susan, and the former bully turned supergenius Duncan - are sent to Earth with three aliens to find a way to prove to the council that humanity doesn't deserve to be eliminated.
Kill All Humans : Some aliens suggest this as the only solution to humanity's violent nature. There're My teacher flunked the planet book hints that the government hushed things up, but it's never fleshed out. I can't remember books, but if you have more thoughts on Duncan's development as a character, or that series as a whole, I'd be super interested to hear them!
My teacher flunked the planet book Parent Conception : The series mentions one species that requires "seven genders [sic] to produce an egg, and three more to hatch it". It made a series of popping, bubbling sounds, then wiggled the squishy-looking pods that dangled from the end of each stalk to indicate that what it had said was a question.

This group wants to fix things. At this point, Coville lays on some fairly heavy handed social commentary, as the kids are whisked about the world to witness the worst humans can offer - war, famine, cruelty, indifference to suffering, and so on.
Seeing them all together was plenty strange. Bizarre Alien Sexes : The series mentions one species that requires "five different genders just to get an egg-and three more to hatch it". Peter is the stongest narrator and has the last two books.
That said, Susan is pretty useless here, to the point where I forgot she was around at one point. It was hard for me to imagine a kid who had bullied his way through grade school, a kid who appeared to have all the sensitivity of a brick, being responsible for the survival of the planet.
Just when everything seems lost, Coville throws in what seems to be a deus ex machina ending, as the root cause of humanity's violence and anger is revealed - and it turns out it really isn't our fault.
