”Space Cop Zack and his robot sidekick GARG skyrocketed through the stars. Zack steered his super-transformational smart ship, the Galaxian, straight into the middle of the swirling asteroid field of Vomitron 9.” Zack and GARG are on the trail of the sinister criminal Dr. Dogbreath. They find themselves on planet X where they discover many obstacles including the Slime Forest and a giant octopus. Will Space Cop Zack be able to find and arrest Dr. Dogbreath? You decide! (no really, you do ;) ) Why I liked this book – I love that this whole book takes place in a kid’s imagination. It makes a neat twist to the end of the book and you really can decide how the book ends using your imagination. At the end of the book you see what has really been happening and there’s a little map that shows where Zack and GARG (his toy robot) have been (his back yard). I thought it was fun to look at the map and then see where Zack really was during the story. The story fun to read and would make a great read aloud for parents and kids. I love the silly humor Mr. Winn puts in the book too. The illustrations are great! They are colorful and have a lot to look at in them. *NOTE I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
