About this book

Is there anybody out there? People have been asking this question for thousands of years and will go on asking it as long as there are stars in the sky. Three brave astronauts and a mascot blast off from their home planet full of hope and yearning for intergalactic friendship. They endure a dizzying array of dangers in their quest and are about to give up when they make a surprising discovery.

Reader's Thoughts


it helps you learn about the planets and it is really cute

This was published back in 1999 when Pluto was still a planet. At the end of the book there is a brief blurb about all of the planets and a few extra tidbits. The book itself is pretty sweet. The story is told in verse. I could be wrong, but it sounded a lot like "The Night Before Christmas". It has been too long since I've studied iambic pentameter and all that. Great illustrations too. Lots of color and emotion.

Cute story about some martians from Mars who travel to all the "Orbs" (planets) in the Milky Way. They try all the planets and find no life, until they land on Earth. It's a cute story, easy to read, but at the same time, it teaches the kids a little bit about the solar system. In the back there is information about each Orb/planet and it is the more "technical" information about what the martians from Mars found.


Very cute and educational!
