Orson Welles made his name with the radio broadcast of "The War of the Worlds." Now, "Aliens Are Coming - The True Account of the 1938 War of the Worlds Broadcast" (written and illustrated by Meghan McCarthy; ages 4-8; Knopf; 40 pages; $16.95) relives it. Why include a book on a famous hoax in a roundup of science books? Certainly, psychology has some claim to scientific status but, more important, crazes, delusions and mass hysteria are as old as humankind, and every budding scientist needs to be inoculated with a healthy dose of skepticism. This is a salutary reminder for youngsters that Grandfather was just as silly as today's youth. McCarthy's delicious illustrations - featuring goggle-eyed humans and appropriately slimy, tentacled aliens - help to make it all fun.
