Get to know Galaxy Zack—and his new home planet!—in this start to an out-of-this-world illustrated chapter book series.
In Hello, Nebulon!, 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 isn’t as awful as Zack’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?
With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Galaxy Zack chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.

To be honest, I didn't read this book. But my extremely reluctant reader did. My just turned 9 year old son always refused to read anything. Everything bored him. That is until he read this book. Now we are in search of the rest of the series, which unfortunately is hard to get in store. He wants to keep reading about Zack. There is no better review I can give than to say it turned around my reluctant reader.
A cute little boy named Zack moves from Earth to a planet called Nebulon. Nothing is the same as Zack’s home planet. The sky, land, and water are different colors than on Earth, the cars fly, and the Nebulites speak very differently. Zack is nervous to move and he thinks no one will like him at school. He has to get used to everything on Nebulon. Hello Nebulon is an early chapter book with lots of awesome pictures (on every page) and words that are easy to read. Boys and girls will both like this book. Ages 6-8 would love to read it on their own but younger kids would love having it read to them because they’d like the story and pictures. My favorite parts are the cool gadgets like the little box that turns into a car when you push a button, Zack’s bed that comes down from the ceiling at night, and the elevator in his house that goes in every direction. There’s even an Indoor Robotic Assistant (IRA) that is wired throughout the house and does almost everything for Zack and his family. The whole book is my favorite part! The writing and story are both incredibly awesome. Zack is so lovable and that makes the book even more enjoyable. I give this book one hundred stars! I wish I could visit Nebulon.
