Reader's Thoughts

Anjali Derhgawen

I thought that this was a good book for young kids. It would be extremely suspenseful and funny for them. The moral was to appreciate everything that you have.

June Pecchia

Pure silliness... spoof on Star Trek, Star Wars, etc.

Clearing off the shelves. I'm a big fan of Jane Yolen but have only read her fantasy & fairy tale works. My oldest son read through this series when he was young though and liked it. This is my first read and I enjoyed it. It's rather like "Frog and Toad" in Space and is a bit of a parody of Star Wars. A simple enough easy reader recommended for ages 7+ this is the third book in the series and has the crew off in space investigating a black hole. They also have an argument about whether Toads or only Frogs can sing. The black hole turns out to be something much more dangerous and bad singing saves the day. Fun. The illustrations are wonderful. I just love them. Bruce Degen is most known for illustrating the Magic School Bus books but I'm partial to his own book Jamberry. A nice easy reader from a classic author/illustrator team.
