Overview

Galaxy Zack blasts back to the past in this outer space chapter book adventure!

A baby pterosaur can’t find his way home, so it’s up to the Nebulon Navigators to return him to the Prehistoric Planet. And when Zack’s dad is invited on the journey, Zack finds a way to go along too! But as they blast off on the super shuttle, they hear a strange noise. Is it the pterosaur, crying for his mama? No, it’s...Zack’s dog, Luna, who has snuck onto the shuttle!

When the shuttle lands, Zack can't believe his eyes: The Prehistoric Planet is full of creatures that he’s only read about in books. Zack and the team of navigators head out in search of the pterosaur’s mother—and end up in the middle of an amazing adventure.

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 - Mary Thompson
In the third "Galaxy Zack" volume, Zack's family lives on the planet Nebulon where dad works as an engineer for Nebulonics, the best electronic research company on Nebulon. Zack's dinosaur filled dreams become a reality when a baby Pterosaur becomes lost and it is up to the Nebulonic investigators to return him to his home. Once they find the prehistoric planet, Nebulonics creates a shuttle to safely return the Pterosaur. Zack gets to go with his dad on this important mission, along with his dog, Luna, who stows away. While there, Zack sees the most amazing things—a Pterosaur reunion, giant waterfalls, and a pair of wrestling T-Rex's. The simple language, great comic-like illustrations, alternating white text set against black, and large bold type chapter headings make this an easy read. Boys will love the inventions at Nebulonics, especially the Galactic Uplink Telescope, and the fast moving action. A must have for beginning chapter book collections. Reviewer: Mary Thompson
