Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Naomi Butler
Sammi and her brother, Jak, lived on a huge spaceship called the Titan. Their mother and father were scientists. The ship explored new planets, looking for worlds for people to live on. Chad was a pilot He had been sent off on a jet-powered helicopter called a buzzer. His job was to find some plant samples. He had asked Jak and Sammi to come along to explore this new planet. Disaster strikes when they are stranded. Deadly spear plants that are intelligent beings and communicate primarily through shared feelings surround them. They need to get back to their ship but it has left without them! Are they trapped in space forever? It is an appropriate mystery for the science fiction reader, the space stories reader, and for anyone who likes a mystery. The rather crude but appropriate and interesting illustrations will also pull in readers. Good additional material consists of an "About the Author," "About the Illustrator," a Glossary, Internet Sites, and for the teachers—Discussion Questions and Writing Prompts. It is part of the "Shade Books" series where each book cover is appropriately illustrated to the topic presented. They are somewhat small sized and could fit easily into school backpacks.
