    I can tell right now, I'm going to love this series. Here's wha

    I can tell right now, I'm going to love this series. Here's what I like. The author write in a language children can understand. She stimulates their trigger to learn about new things. In this first book of the Skymasters Series, Allie Henderson has just discovered a mirrow image of herself in her trusty old treehouse. Not knowing what to do, the girls carry on as usual. While top scientists are trying to figure out how to get Allie's galactuc cousin Eilla back to her own planet, Eilla learns about how to think about family in a different and loving way. The girls both adapt and they use the resources of Allie'[s handicapped brother Peter and his aid Kasem to help them figure out the risks and benefits of returning Eilla to her own planet. This is such a family-friendly series. The adults are responsible and available and the children see them as supportive rather than as controlling. The children use their imaginations to sort out a highly difficult situation and they go about it in a charming way. These characters are real people, believeable people and they can serveas role models to girls and boys alike. I like what I see and can't wait for the next book!

    “Galaxy Girl” was written by Dr. Karen Pirnot. This book is perfect for higher elementary children. This tale’s focus is on ten-year-old Allie, whom we first met in “The Above All Others Principal” from the 'Ordinary Kids' series. Allie's brother Peter was injured in a Little League Game when he slid into base; he was only eight years old at the time and is now a paraplegic. Allie was a typical pre-teen no longer a kid and yet a long way from being an adult. It was spring break and Allie was supposed to be cleaning her room, instead she was looking out her window. She thought she saw something move but her mother refused to let her go outside. Early the next morning Allie quietly went outside to investigate; what she found shocked her. Something was wrapped in Allie’s sleeping bag in the corner of her playhouse. Startled, it rose up and let out a shocked scream; it was a girl that looked just like Allie. Eilla was from another realm; her father studied quantum mechanics and she was told not to enter his laboratory when the red light was on. She excitedly rushed into tell her father something disregarding the warning. Suddenly she found herself in Allie’s world. Allie’s family agrees to help Allie as she tries to find a way home. Eilla is introduced to Allie’s school friends as a cousin. The girls quickly settle into a normal routine. Will Eilla ever make it home again?

    “Galaxy Girl” is a refreshing read for third through eighth graders. It has just enough science fiction elements to grab the readers’ attention. The plot moves along at a steady pace. Dr. Karen Pirnot’s books assist readers in accepting others as they are. Too often when we see a handicapped person we will avoid speaking to him. This author’s goal is to help readers understand the handicapped and how they should be treated.

    I really love the characters in this book. There is little Alli

    I really love the characters in this book. There is little Allie Henderson, a spunky preteen who loves to explore. She has her chance when her galactic cousin Eilla unexpectedly arrives from a parallel planet. The girls establish a friendship that promises to last a lifetime. Characters from Dr. Pirnot's other books are also in this book and they are eager to assist Allie and Eilla in attempts to get Eilla back to her home on the planet of Arret. When they team up with the science lab at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), they are well on their way to understanding another version of the universe. I found the book absolutely delightful but as an adult, I learned a few things as well! It you liked this book, you'll love the ones that follow!
