Is It Any Good?

This exciting sequel maintains the fun, smart dynamics of the first book while taking things to a new location and terrain to explore and discover. Here, Pockets the cat gets more in on the action, Archie settles into his role as a map reader and problem solver, and Dad keeps a watchful eye while guiding Archie through the mission.

What makes the series engaging is the way it blends a realistic depiction of outer space with a wild premise in ways that encourage imagination yet foster an appreciation for the real science behind space and, in this episode, water travel. Simple cartoon illustrations add to the humor.

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.
