Publisher’s Synopsis: Freedom for lobsters! The second in the Eudora Space Kid series: a hilariously funny, early reader sci-fi chapter book perfect for elementary-aged kids. Can Eudora and her best friend, Arnold, rescue her favorite lobsters from becoming the next meal at the spaceship’s New Year’s buffet?
Eudora is a normal third-grader who just happens to live on a 36 deck AstroLiner. In SPACE! As a math and science whiz who’s been adopted by what you might call . . . aliens, she has normal ambitions—like being the chief engineer on an AstroLiner. But when her favorite lobsters on board appear on the menu at Chef Franklin’s dinner buffet, Eudora and her best friend, Arnold, hatch a plan to break them out. Will they save their crustacean friends? Or will they end up locked in the ship’s brig? Again . . .
Brilliant for engaging emergent and early chapter book readers.
When I reviewed the first Eudora book I said "it reads as a mashup of Junie B. Jones and Star Trek." I still think that is a good elevator pitch for the series. Eudora lives on the space ship Athena that is part of the Astro Fleet of the Planetary Republic. 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. "The Republic is a group of twenty planets that work together to make the galaxy a better place for all living things, even dentists." Although Eudora has written to the president and asked that dentists be taken off the protected list (and that homework be added to the list of the Republic's enemies), so far those improvements have not been made.
Along with homework, dance class, and other everyday activities Eudora uses her STEM skills to reprogram the ship's computers to play a song about "Wiggle your booty on the dance floor" when a red alert is sounded. And she talks her friend Arnold into helping her free some of her father's lab specimens. As her mother says, "You say you want to be an officer, and you have all these great skills. I just wish you used them for good instead of all this silliness." The author's and illustrator's notes are written by their pets, which offers a unique glimpse into how they view their human families. There is also a word search for readers to enjoy. If you know children who like humorous stories about youngsters and outer space, then suggest Eudora Space Kid: The Lobster Tale to them.
