Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
When Zack Nelson lived with his family on Earth, Bert was his best friend. Now that Zack’s family lives on the planet Nebulon, he and Bert keep up with each other via hyperphone. This phone lets the two boys see each other as they talk about their activities and the changes in their lives. It is almost Easter and Zack and Bert are remembering what it was like on Earth to decorate eggs and play fun games together. This year, Zack is not even sure they will celebrate Easter on Nebulon. There are no eggs on Nebulon except the eggs of the rondo bird, and those eggs are the size of a softball. They would be difficult to hide. At the dinner table, Zack’s twin sisters ask dad how they will celebrate Easter. Will there be baskets and chocolate bunnies? Dad is prepared for their questions and tells them about the surprise he has planned for them. They will visit the planet Gluco, better known as the candy planet, for Easter. The planet of Gluco is shaped like a giant jelly bean and its streets run with golden caramel. There are all kinds of games and contests to play on Gluco, and Zack really wants to win the games. He will have to decide if winning is so important that he will cheat. This is a delightful fantasy for young readers and will pique their imagination about living on other planets, even if they are not made of candy. Reviewer: Joyce Rice; Ages 5 to 7.

Read an Excerpt

A Galactic Easter!


  • Zack Nelson stared into his hyperphone. On the screen he saw Bert, his best friend from Earth. Zack and his family used to live on Earth. Now they lived on the planet Nebulon.

“What are you doing today, Bert?” asked Zack.

“We’re painting Easter eggs,” Bert replied.

In the background Zack could see Roberta and Darlene, Bert’s two younger sisters. The girls ran into the room carrying a painting set and a basket full of eggs. “Remember when we used to decorate eggs together?” Zack asked.

“That was pretty cool,” said Bert. “Remember doing the egg toss?”

“Totally!” replied Zack. “Especially the year I missed the catch and the egg landed on my new shoes!”

“And what about the sack races?”

“Oh, they were funny. Hop, hop, hop . . . fall! Hop, hop, hop . . . fall!”

Zack and Bert both started laughing hysterically.

“So how do they celebrate Easter there on Nebulon?” asked Bert.

Zack thought for a moment.

“You know, Bert, I’m not really sure,” he replied. “This is our first Easter here.”

“Are there eggs on Nebulon?” Bert asked.

“I know there aren’t any chickens here,” Zack explained. “When we eat eggs, they’re the eggs of the rondo bird. And those eggs are big and round like softballs.”

“Excuse me, Master Just Zack,” said a voice from a speaker just above Zack.

“What’s up, Ira?” Zack asked.

Ira was the Nelson family’s Indoor Robotic Assistant. Although he was a machine, Ira had quickly become a part of the Nelson family.

“Dinner will be ready in five minutes,” Ira explained.

“Thanks, Ira. I’ll be right down,” said Zack. “Gotta go, Bert. Happy Easter! Let’s vid-chat again soon.”

“See ya, Zack.”

How will we celebrate Easter? Zack wondered as he left his room and headed downstairs for dinner.
