Children's LiteratureIn this very simple story, Space Cat and Earl, his robot pal, make an emergency landing on a planet when their ship is hit by a space rock. Prior to this collision they had been discussing Earl's cooking skills which seem to be minimal—he makes noodles that are a sticky, gooey mess. After the accident, Space Cat goes out to obtain some fuel while Earl fixes the ruptured fuel tank and works on his cooking skills and in doing so ends up saving the day. Space Cat has no luck getting the necessary fuel, but when he prevents an explosion of the fuel processing device, the grateful king gives him what he needs. It is not much of a story, but the illustrations are amusing and it may have more appeal to beginning readers than to this adult reviewer. Part of the "An I Can Read Book" series. 2004, HarperCollins, Ages 4 to 8.
