Astronaut Academy: Re-entry
I will openly admit I had trouble with the first book in the series when I read it, in part because I had a hard time putting myself into the mindset of a young kid, which is who this series is aimed for. But this time around I had a bit of an easier time, perhaps because there's a nice overarching theme with the mysterious fiend on the loose! And gosh darn it I wanted to know what the heck happened and how Hakata and the gang were going to stop this creature! Even though we switched viewpoints every few pages, the overall arching theme made it easy to keep up and I loved that we got to check back in with old friends (and learn more about Hakata in the process!) The storytelling and the artwork both remind me of the cartoon “Kids Next Door,” which is the one of the best compliments I can give to the story since I loved that cartoon.
It's a romping good adventure if you're the right age (or have the right mindset) and I'd highly recommend the book. 4 out of 5 stars.
