GALAXY'S MOST WANTED is a zippy, engaging adventure that should appeal equally to boys and girls looking for some silly reading fun. Author John Kloepfer has a good ear for kids' language and attitude, and the abundant black-and-white cartoon illustrations throughout will doubtless hook some reluctant readers.

The plot is completely crazy, but the story's well-told and involving. And the occasional gross-out humor will provoke giggles, such as when an alien beast sneezes, "sending extraterrestrial snot everywhere. TJ stood there covered in slimy mucus." The one real disappointment: The story does not fully conclude but ends on a cliff-hanger. A few pages later, a full page announces, "The Action continues in Galaxy's Most Wanted," and teases the plot of the sequel (Into the Dorkness).

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.
