From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4-An excellent tool for introducing a unit on three-dimensional shapes. After conquering galaxies, Captain Invincible and his space-dog, Comet, prepare for an adventurous return to Earth in their spaceship Hawk. Using the Space Shaper panel, with its three-dimensional buttons that include a cube, a cone, and a pyramid, the captain and the pup wage a battle against a meteor shower, poison gas, a flying saucer, and a galactic beast. Just as the two are about to land safely, a beam of light floods their spaceship, and an open bedroom door reveals the true source of this journey-a child's late-night, wondrous imagination with the help of paper, scissors, and Scotch tape. The bold cartoon art in deep, bright colors draws readers into this fun and exciting story that is a vehicle for learning to recognize and define geometric shapes. The concluding reinforcement strategies and activities are very good. A good choice as a read-aloud or for independent reading.
