Publisher’s Synopsis: Eudora is a typical 3rd grader. A typical 3rd grader who lives on a 36 deck AstroLiner. In space. A normal girl adopted by what you might call… aliens. Her mom is a dog-like species named a Pox and runs the onboard jail (brig). Her dad is an octopus-like species from the planet Pow. She is a girl who has normal ambitions, like being the chief engineer on an AstroLiner.
Eudora is a girl who comes up with a plan to prove her worth by improving her AstroLiner’s engines and breaking all known speed records. Will she succeed and earn a promotion? Or will she end up in the brig? Again…
Brilliant for engaging emergent and early chapter book readers.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
David Horn is a huge science fiction fan. While his wife sometimes feels like they live in outer space, they really live in New Jersey with their two human daughters and one doggy daughter named Trixie.
David loves reading science fiction books from both the old and new greats like Asimov, McDevitt, Scalzi, Howey, and more. He also loves reading his kids’ books like My Weird School, Just Grace, The Baby-Sitters Club, Ramona, and the list goes on.
David and his daughters also love watching sci-fi shows like Star Trek, Babylon 5, Stargate, and Star Wars.
Eudora Space Kid started as stories he told his daughters at dinner. They loved Eudora’s antics in space. So now The Great Engine Room Takeover is his first book in the Eudora Space Kid early reader chapter book series. He can’t wait for you to love Eudora’s stories too.

This story reads as a mashup of Junie B. Jones and Star Trek. Eudora lives on the space ship Athena that is part of the Astro Fleet of the Planetary Republic (a bit like Star Fleet in the Federation). Her parents are part of the ship's crew and Eudora is a third grader who plans to be an awesome officer herself one day. In the meantime, she is busy making everyone on board a little crazy. For instance, there was the time that she "accidentally" dropped her Halloween pumpkin into the fusion chamber in the engine room. That was a couple of years ago and she's much more mature and has bigger plans now; plans like...firing the ship's plasma cannons while her class is touring the bridge. Or, what about her plan to prove that she can make the ship's engines break speed records? Eudroa thinks, "Then I could skip the rest of elementary school and all of middle school. Why not just go straight to chief engineer?"
Although the story takes place in space there are plenty of elements that young readers on Earth can identify with and enjoy. Eudora and her sister are adopted and her best friend Arnold has a stepfather. Their parents and Arnold’s stepfather are aliens, but they form loving families to raise the children. There is also friction between Eudora and her older sister Molly, whom she believes will someday have a job in AstroFleet as “Chief Galactic Spelling Bee Planner.” If you know children who enjoy humorous stories about youngsters in school and family situations (even in outer space), then suggest Eudora Space Kid to them.
