Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This is an entertaining read because it has so much fun with its space-age premise, blending warm humor, silly twists, and spirited, likable characters. The author's imagining of space is a perfect kid-friendly incarnation that isn't too frightening or overly simplistic, with extra-tall people on a lower-gravity planet, strange cat detectives, and moderate suspense.

Through 8-year-old Archie's eyes and innocent wonderment, kids can easily imagine what space travel would be like in SPACE TAXI: ARCHIE TAKES FLIGHT. And with its simple, cartoon-like illustrations of characters' adventures and plain-spoken language, it also will help readers stretch their imaginations to comprehend far-flung places, while keeping their concept of outer space grounded in reality.
