Product Description

About the Author

Ray O’Ryan has loved space stories ever since he watched the very first episode of Star Trek. He loves to imagine what traveling across the galaxy might be like and is a bit jealous of Galaxy Zack in this regard. Ray lives in the beautiful Catskill Mountains in upstate New York with his wife and two lovable, zany cats named Stitch and The Way.

Colin Jack is originally from Vancouver, Canada, and has illustrated several children’s books. He currently works at DreamWorks Animation as a story artist and character designer and lives in the Bay Area with his wife and two sons.

Chapter 1

Play Ball!

Zack Nelson and his friend Drake Taylor sat in the home stadium of the Creston City Comets. A bright orange field spread out below them.

“Okay, Drake,” Zack said. “I know I’m still the new kid on Nebulon. And I’ve never seen a galactic blast game before, but I have one question: Where are the players?”

Drake smiled and pointed to both sides of the field.

Zack looked down and saw two teams of robots. Suddenly a whistle blew, and all the robots scrambled out onto the field.

“So people don’t play galactic blast? Robots do?” Zack asked.

“The robots pitch and hit and run and field,” explained Drake. “But people operate the robots using remote control units.”

Just as good as the first one! Great Book! July 22 2013
By Young Mensan BookParade - Published on
Format: Paperback
Journey To Juno is the second book of the Galaxy Zack series. It is just as good as the first one. It's awesome! Zack joins the Sprockets Academy Explorers Club at school. They fly on a special trip to Juno, a new planet no one has ever visited. Zack gets paired up with Seth, the class bully, and that's dreadful but Zack is excited when he finds a huge galaxy gemmite. A gemmite that large had not been found in 100 years! Kids will love this book! Boys and girls will both like it. It's an easy chapter book with pictures on every page. I love the illustrations. I think ages 6-8 would like this but younger kids would like the story being read to them.

My favorite parts are the galactic blast game (it is similar to baseball except there are robots playing), recess at Zack's school where everything is 3-D holographic images, the rainbow river in a crystal cave on Juno, and the galaxy gemmite that Zack finds on Juno. I also loved when a life-size holographic image of his Earth friend appears in Zack's room because he calls him on a hyperphone. I give this book one hundred stars! There is a "to be continued" at the end so you have to read the next book see what's in store. I can't wait to find out what happens!!!

This series is proving to be an excellent read for our 8 year old grandson. I would say a reading level "4". It has action and takes kids into a story with relationships they may experience themselves ... bullies, moving to a new home, starting a new school.
Thought tis was a fun book for young boys Feb. 27 2014
