Overview

Can a slightly cynical school teacher survive a field trip, an interdimensional incident and a handsome tour guide all at the same time?

A futuristic comedy of (little) terrors.

Third grade teacher Hazel James has been escorting her students to the Space Station Freedom Museum and Amusement park on their annual field trip for years. Somewhat dull years, all things considered, but well within the budget of the Integrated Public School System of Earth so she doesn't have to pay for the extras. This year, however, starts out with an ominous fizzle almost as soon as she and her batch of darling troublemakers enter the front door. The museum's shabby equipment malfunctions during the shuttle simulation. The children are having some issues with the whole paying attention business. And their usual tour guide has been replaced by a good-looking Zhie male--who's completely incompetent at his job.

Or is he? Miss James knows something is up at Space Station Freedom--whether due to budget cuts, poor management or one too many unruly student groups--but she has no idea what an unusual turn their annual field trip is about to take.

    Delightful & entertaining!

    If you're looking for a fun and quick read, love the mayhem children can cause, and can sympathize with teachers no matter what century they live in, then this is the short story for you!

    I've read several Jody Wallace books and she always delivers laughs and hijinks, along with a storyline that keeps the pages turning. She has a Fae series that I enjoyed tremendously.

    Science Fiction Fun!

    This was a fun little romp. Great narrative voice, meticulous world building, and professional writing and editing. The characters were well-developed and distinct, including the personalities of the little third grade monsters on their field trip. Cute cover, too; love the nod to Judy Jetson!

    The story stands well on its own, although I wouldn't have minded if it had gone on for longer, and I would love a further installment in the burgeoning relationship between Miss James and Sergeant Chamblin. If you enjoy light and funny science fiction, you could do a lot worse than this!
