Gr 1–3—At the very start of the summer, second-grade twins Finn and Molly find a camper in front of their home. Their father has swapped their family car for his dream vehicle with plans to take the family on the ultimate vacation. But before he gets the chance, curiosity overcomes Finn and Molly when they decide to check out the camper in the middle of the night. The twins discover that the camper is actually a magic transporter called Planet Earth Transporter (aka PET) that sends them on assignment from their home in Ohio to Colorado where their adventure begins. They end up on a cattle drive where they make new friends, gear up like cowboys, and learn about the state. But when Snowflake, the ranch's prized cow, is stolen, the twins embark on solving the mystery before returning safely home.
VERDICT A beginning chapter series that's part geography lesson, part adventure, and part mystery. A solid addition for medium and large collections.–Vivian Ho, Port Washington Public Library, NY
