Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The creators of Saturday Night at the Dinosaur Stomp team up for a playful interplanetary trek that follows four Martians on a mission to find alien life. The travelers' first destination is the distant Orb Number Nine, which Earthlings call Pluto: "It was dreary and dark,/ and mostly all granite./ They radioed home--/ `No life on this planet.' " The Martians work backward through the inhospitable Neptune, Uranus and Saturn, but at Jupiter "they decided to beat it./ `If anything lives here,/ we don't want to meet it!' " Before heading home, they land pessimistically upon the blue-and-green Orb Number Three. At last, in a twist similar to that of Neil Layton's Smile If You're Human, the aliens meet some friendly organisms--a flock of playful penguins--and present them with a souvenir "Martian rock." Nash, like Layton, models the buglike, antennaed aliens on a vacationing family. He takes comic liberties with their bright red hovercraft, which looks like a 1950s-era car with tail fins and includes an ovoid silver trailer. An informative afterword nicely recaps all the Orbs in the Martians' solar system. Ages 4-8. (Nov.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-A group of Martians who blast off in search of life on other planets are about to give up after many unsuccessful landings. Finally, however, they reach the South Pole and discover a colony of penguins. After much cavorting with their newfound friends, they head for home in great jubilation, leaving the penguins a rock as a souvenir of their visit. Breezy cartoon drawings accompany the rhyming text. A two-page spread at the end provides a little information about the planets, but the layout is confusing. A ho-hum story, with equally bland art.-Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
