    In the first book of the 'Skymasters Series', "Galaxy Girl", preteen Allie Henderson discovers an intergalactic visitor named Eilla, who looks just like her. She is Allie's galactic cousin from a parallel universe. In the second book, "Under the Universe", things get even more interesting. It has been a year since Eilla returned to her parallel universe and Allie is eager for an adventure of her own. She gets just such an opportunity when the MIT science team tells her they are ready to transport her to Eilla's planet. Allie must then choose between the safety of the known and the potential adventure of another universe. Allie and Eilla visit Stonehenge and discover a subterranean world in which nothing appears as it does on the surface. There they meet a pair of hermit crabs who give them clues into some of the secrets of the universe.

    There is much to charm the young reader in this book, including enchanting illustrations. Although this is the second book in a series, the story can stand alone. This is an adventure of inner and outer exploration as the author highlights the thirst for knowledge in this age group, and the cousins absorb facts like sponge. There is just enough space ‘stuff’ and quantum physics for kids to make it fun and adventurous rather than boring. But the adventure is not just about time travel. In both worlds, the girls have a disabled sibling, and author Dr. Karen Hutchins Pirnot handles this with tact and sensitivity. I enjoyed the empathy between the cousins. Allie goes on a learning curve as she discovers the differences between her world and her cousin’s with snippets of geography, history, science, economics and social change, and astronomy filtering through. The author has popped some famous modern and historical names into the mix, with amusing characters that give their own opinion of life. There is a nice blend of facts, fantasy, and legend (Atlantis and Mu). The story ends with more investigation planned and with a hint of danger. My only criticism is that there is perhaps too much information for this age group to absorb.

    This book takes off right where the first one left off. But, if you've not read the first book, this one stands alone and is a really fun read. Eilla Henderson has returned to her own planet and Allie longs for an adventure of her own. Finally, the MIT science team believes they have the wherewithall to send someone from Earth to a parallel universe. Since Allie and Eilla are about the same size, Allie looms as the logical choice to be the guinea pig. After convincing her mother Then, the family takes a trip to Stonghenge where the girls discover a subterranean world. They meet a pair of gigantic crabs, a snake who is a plumber and various other odd creatures, all who are reportedly from a distant planet. Their views of the universe are tested as tjeu begom to understand that there is more to the universe than first meets the eye. When Allie's adventure is up, Eilla begs to return to Earth but is denied the opportunity. She then creates a monumental problem for everyone involved! Kids will love this book as is is both filled with adventure and is something they just might want to research as well!
