Review: Pets in Space - Rocket Ride by Jan Burchett and Sara Vogler
Publisher: Orion Children's Books
Format: Paperback / eBook
Released: March 5th, 2015
The super Satniks take friends Tom, Zack and Daisy on a museum misson and test their out-of-this-world skills at the school pet show - but will their tricks put them top of the class? They may be naughty, but the best pets are always the PETS FROM SPACE!
Rocket Ride is the first Pets from Space book I've read even though it's the fourth in the series, and now it's safe to say that I want a blue mop-haired cat called Zingle. It's also one of many good reasons to read this cosmic book!
This book is split into two stories, Blast Off and Best Pets, all about the Satniks and their human owners. The Satniks are pets from the planet Saturn, with cool names and even cooler appearances, and they get up to all kinds of mischief at museums and school pet shows. Tom, Zack and Daisy might have the best, and most unusual, pets in the world, but they also have the very difficult job of keeping an eye on them at all times!
Rocket Ride is a fast, fun read for children, and I enjoyed getting to know the Satniks. It's also fully illustrated by Alex Paterson which makes it even better, and I'm sure younger readers will love getting to see what the Satniks look like. I know I did! Now, where can I get a mop-haired cat from?
