About this title

Synopsis:

During a devastating flood, Matt and his parents are transported to a mysterious planet inhabited by other misplaced earthlings and ruled by robots where Matt teams up with two young geniuses in an effort to escape back to Earth.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7-- Matt and his parents are rescued from a flood by alien robots who have set up colonies of intelligent beings from various worlds on Planet S-15. Matt joins two other children, Sarah and Ryan, in an attempt to reprogram a robot to get them back to Earth. Sarah and Ryan are caught, but Matt escapes to another colony and lives with the alien Dar for a while. Cyber, the robot, returns for him; they rescue Sarah and Ryan and set out for Terezor, the original planet of the robots. There, Matt changes his body to that of a (now extinct) Terezor and reprograms the master computer. The book ends with the four leaving for Earth and planning what they will do now that they control all of the robots. Space flight here is mainly a device to keep the plot moving, but the robots show fairly reasonable development. Perhaps the most imaginative part of the story is the alien Dar who metamorphose through a complex life cycle and, as a result, have an unusual culture. However, believing that Matt, even with the help of a Dar fruit, could metamorphose into a Terezor would strain readers' credulity if the plot were not moving very quickly at that point. Matt and Cyber are the only really developed characters, as Ryan and Sarah are essentially brainy snobs and all of the adults have succumbed to the good life on S-15. The suspenseful adventures will keep readers from noticing the plot contrivances, the shallow characters, and the cliched writing and create demand for the sequels in this projected trilogy. --Carolyn Caywood, Virginia Beach Public Library
