Publisher Comments:

andlt;Bandgt;Get to know Galaxy Zackand#8212;and his new home planet!and#8212;in this start to an out-of-this-world illustrated chapter book series.andlt;/Bandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;In andlt;Iandgt;Hello, Nebulon!andlt;/Iandgt;, Zack makes the big move from Earth. He is already nervous about starting school and making new friends, but it only gets worse when he dreams that his classmates are slimy aliens with tentacles, pizza comes covered in gross bugs, and he can never communicate with his Earth friends again! Fortunately, when Zack arrives at Sprockets Academy for his first day of school, he meets and befriends Drake Tucker, a Nebulite boy who also loves to explore and learn about the planets. Nebulon isnand#8217;t as awful as Zackand#8217;s dream, but there are a lot of differences between Nebulon and Earth, and they make Zack miss his home in Dubbsville, Texas, even more. But things start to look up when he receives a mysterious surprise. What could it possibly be?andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Galaxy Zack chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.

Review:

"In the lively first title in the Galaxy Zack series, set in 2120, Zack is unhappy about moving from Earth to Nebulon for his father's job. Soaring to their new planet in the family space cruiser, the eight-year-old thinks about how much he'll miss his best friend, and has nightmares that his new classmates are monstrous aliens and that Nebulite pizza is topped with worms and 'extra-moldy cheese.' Yet he's impressed — as will be readers — by the planet's gadgetry: cars and bikes zip through the air, and a sideways-moving elevator transports the family through their house. An invisible, talking computer tends to their every need, and Jack's bed drops from a ceiling panel, as does food that lands on the family's floating dinner table. Illustrator Jack's (Toads on Toast) Jetsons-meets-Johnny Neutron illustrations, which appear on every page, energize the story and make its fun, futuristic details all the easier to envision, while O'Ryan's trim sentences and brisk dialogue are well targeted at beginning readers. A second book, Journey to Juno, is available simultaneously, and four additional titles will arrive later in the year. Ages 5 — 7." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Karank, October 23, 2014 (view all comments by Karank)
My son loves the entire series of Galaxy Zack books. He is 3.5-years-old and this has been his first experience within the world of chapter books. He picked one up at the library and we read all 10 chapters in one (long) go. Since then, we have purchased the full set at Powell's on Hawthorne and have worked our way through the series. We are all eagerly awaiting the two new books coming out in the next few months.

The books are very well-written, have terrific illustrations, and the story lines truly captivate my son. He spends a good part of each day recreating adventures of Zack and his friends, "directing" my husband and I each in our dialogue and actions. These are books we will keep and he will surely read to himself as soon as he is able.
