Overview

Zack learns that appearances aren’t everything when he has an up-close-and-personal monster encounter in this chapter book adventure.

Zack is shocked when he goes to school one day and finds a monster in his seat! Who/what is this creature? At first Zack is scared, but he soon finds that this monster, Al, is kind and friendly. Zack and Al become fast friends, and Zack goes to Al’s planet and meets all kinds of other monsters. Zack realizes that just because Al looks different, it doesn’t mean that he’s weird or strange.

With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Galaxy Zack chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Renee Farrah Vess
Zack arrives at school to find a large, purple monster sitting at his desk, and no one seems as surprised as he is. When Zack asks his friend Drake why no one is reacting to the sudden appearance of a monster in class, Drake says it is because they are not surprised see to other members of the galaxy who look different than them. Zack and Drake befriend Al, the visitor from the planet Plexus, and Zack learns an important lesson about how physical differences do not always mean someone is strange. This is a cute book with active black and white illustrations, it is an excellent conversation starter about how to handle situations when you encounter someone who looks different from you. Zack learns that he and Al share common interests, which never would have happened if his fear and shock had prevented him from starting a conversation with the visitor. Great for discussion, and very kid-friendly, with a twist of science fiction and space adventure to get even the most hesitant reader to think about how he or she would handle someone new sitting in their seat. This is book number four in the “Galaxy Zack” series. Reviewer: Renee Farrah Vess; Ages 5 to 7.
