What NOT to Do When You Find a Spaceship

What NOT to Do When You Find a Spaceship
(Recommended for ages 8 to 12)

Tommy starts to wonder if his luck is changing when he finds a spaceship in Deep Creek Woods. Is it just a coincidence, or does it have something to do with the comic books he writes about Space Elves, Doom Droids, and Galactic Goblins? With the help of his friends, Tommy discovers a link between his stories, the ship, and an unfulfilled mission destined to carry them into space.

Yet, the toughest challenge Tommy faces is Mitch, the neighborhood bully, who claims the spaceship as his own. The only kid who has ever stood up to Mitch and survived is Muggie, the girl next door, and Tommy hasn't seen her in years.

Tommy must find the courage to confront Mitch and keep the big brute from ruining everything. And he must act now, for far away, the Space Elves are dying, and time is running out.

Here's what some reviewers have to say:

  • My 9 year old daughter met this author at a literary festival and wanted to book. She DEVOURED it. She loved it. She read it non-stop from when she received it till she was finished and I frequently heard her giggle as she was reading it.
  • The attention to detail is spot on. Great read for both kids and adults.
  • From the minute [my son] started, he couldn't put it down. He is 8 and I thought the material might be too old for him but he had no trouble with it. While this is definately a Sci-Fi story, there is an honesty in the characters' interaction that rings true. It is sort of an all American alien adventure. Enjoy!
