Review: This book is a great example of science fiction because it incorporates imaginative characters and settings, but bridges the gap of disbelief by using the possibilities of science. Tinker and Tom, a boy and a bear, find a Star Baby in their backyard and try to fix its spaceship so that it can return to its mother.Level: Primary, Intermediate
