Steve Altier’s Blast Off! With Gabby and Maddox-Gabby and Maddox 2


Overview: Gabby and Maddox are setting out on their newest adventure. This time, they are part of the “Children’s Astronaut Program.” What will this mission hold in store for them? And will they make it home after a mechanical malfunction?

Story Telling: We have a middle grade adventure with a splash of science-fiction.

Artwork: We get a few black-and-white sketches to go along with the story.

Likes: Gabby and Maddox kept their cool pretty well. And the aliens weren’t so frightening.

Dislikes: It’s not really a problem with the story, but with your humble reviewer. I had a hard time with the idea of two children, under the age of ten, going into space…alone.

Favorite Character: I guess it would be Maddox.

Favorite Quote: Just like a child. “It’s too early to get up, what are your doing?”

Favorite Scene: The pancake breakfast was pretty cool.

Conclusion: A middle-grader will definitely enjoy this one. Enjoy it with yours.
