&ldquo;Mousetronaut&rdquo; is a book about a mouse called Meteor. The mouse is smaller than the other mice. He gets to go up in the space shuttle and helps the astronauts in the space shuttle. I think other kids would enjoy this book because it is about space shuttles. Other kids would like space shuttles. My favorite part was when Meteor gets to come out of his cage and gets a tour of the space shuttle. Review by Young Mensan Bram P., age 4

This is a fabulous, clearly written, book with lovely illustrations. The idea that the smallest mouse trains the hardest and then "saves the day" and gets recognition for his attitude and his hard work is the perfect message to give young children. The illustrations are realistic and encourage interest in space & science. My 4 year-old grandson loved hearing it, and then my 6 year-old granddaughter enjoyed reading it to herself although it's not written for early readers. We read it several times & my grandkids came up with interesting questions every time.

This looked like a cute book and I wasn't disappointed! The illustrations are great. Meteor is full of personality and shows that even the smallest one of us can help out. The story is based on fact, (mice did go into space) and there is a good history of the background of the mousetronaut and space program in the back of the book. Thanks to Mark Kelly for bringing us this story.

Just happened to see Mark Kelly on TV showing book--it was an instant eye catcher. Purchased for my grandson and we all had a learning expierence from the facts and fiction.

A space mission is getting ready to leave, and everyone is excited. Along with all the astronauts, six mice will get to go on the mission as well. Meteor is the smallest of the mice, and he really wants to go on the mission so he has been working really hard. When it is time to decide, five of the biggest and strongest mice are chosen, but because of his hard work so is Meteor. During the space mission the key to the control panel gets stuck in a crack. None of the astronauts can get it out, but Meteor is small and wants to be helpful. Will Meteor save the mission? Mousetronaut is perfect for the budding astronaut with striking illustrations and a fun storyline. Written by Astronaut Mark Kelly, Mousetronaut is inspired by one of the mice on his first mission in space aboard the Endeavour in 2001. Included at the end of the book is a brief afterword by Mark Kelly that includes a brief history of the space program and life as an astronaut. Recommended for readers age 4-8.
