Gr 1-3–This new installment of the “LEGO City” series tells the story of Madison Yea and Billy McCloud, reporter and photographer, respectively, of the school newspaper. Their new assignment is to write a story about astronauts. In their quest to learn more about astronauts, they meet the famous Captain Momentous, who gives them a tour of the space station and takes them to see the inside of a rocket. While in the rocket, Billy accidentally pushes a button that sends them all up into space, destined for the Planet Zing. On Planet Zing the captain gets stuck in a crater, and Madison and Billy use their logic skills to save the day. A clear message of teamwork and cooperation runs throughout the book. The digital art is consistent with others in the “Step Into Reading” series. All characters are depicted as LEGO; this will be a real-world connection for children who play with the toys.
VERDICT A feel-good, action-packed story that will keep children engaged from the first page. Recommended where other “LEGO City” books are popular.
