Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

The outcome is somewhat predictable, but MOUSESTRONAUT is appealing for its cute main character and engaging art. It succeeds as an insider's view of manned space flight, with lots of information about the space shuttle program in the substantial Afterword that parents and teachers can share with kids.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
