AstroNuts Mission Two: The Water Planet
The AstroNuts are blasting off on a mission to find the Goldilocks Planet. It has to have a lot of water and not be too hot or too cold but rather just right for human life. Why are they looking for this planet? Because Earth is under threat from human activities causing climate change. The ice is melting, the sea is rising, algae are growing out of control, and fish are becoming extinct. This new planet has the potential to be the new Earth. But will it fit the bill? Only a scientific investigation will tell if it qualifies or not.
I thought the plot was well done. I enjoyed the new planet having clam inhabitants, which was highly creative. I also liked that the book made the reader question what the truth was and what it was not. I loved the way the book was formatted. The characters were creative and the settings were really neat. The speech bubbles and banners were awesome. I thought the characters were fleshed out very well. I liked Alpha Wolf especially, and P.T. Clam was also very well done.
I would recommend this book for kids aged eight to twelve.
