Review:

Brightly illustrated and told in simple prose for young minds, this children's picture book is a wonderful way to teach children about the importance of positive thinking and the ugliness of bullying. Best of all, it is a great, fun story, with lots of action and adventure. In many ways, it reads like a comic book. Children will relate to the characters and learn about space, planets, and the universe. Joe Scott has created an exciting series. Highly recommended!
