Astro Mouse and Light Bulb: Vs. Astro Chicken

Papercutz. (Astro Mouse and Light Bulb: Bk. 1). Apr. 2021. 112p. pap. $9.99. ISBN 9781545806388.
Gr 3-5–Having gotten lost on the way to the moon, a rodent and a sentient light bulb aimlessly cruise from one bodily fluid–fueled space predicament to the next and meet a bizarre set of characters along the way. When Astro Mouse and Light Bulb discover their bathroom is out of order and their chamber pot overflows, they make an emergency landing on a lush, unknown planet, which brings to life the contents of the pot in the form of Caca, their new pet. Other adventures include a bathroom stop on a planet of warring bubble gum kingdoms and the discovery of the overbearing Astro Chicken trapped inside a giant space dinorhinosaurus booger. Potty humor reigns supreme in this collection of often disjointed incidents, which at times may leave readers with a sense of situational whiplash. The colorful and expressive artwork is just as unapologetic about bodily fluids as the stories and is sure to elicit plenty of “ewwwwws” from readers.
VERDICT Those seeking fast-paced, stomach-churning space adventures will find a friend in Astro Mouse.
