About this title


Space Monkey, a former astronaut now involved in big business, must figure out a way to get a tiny bug out of his company's new product. By the authors of Mr. Lunch Takes a Plane Ride.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4?The creators of that canine bird-chaser Mr. Lunch introduce another amazing animal. Having achieved fame as an "early astronaut," Space Monkey returns to Earth to make his mark as an entrepreneur. However, his cherished millionth product is lost in transit. Penelope the bug discovers the "lost thing" and, believing it to be a house, settles in. Eventually, the product is returned. With some effort and communication, a happy ending is enjoyed by all. Once again, Seibold's innovative, computer-generated visuals fill the pages with energetic images. The muted colors and stylized cartoon design create a distinct 1950s feeling. As in their earlier books, dry, zany humor and social commentary are abundant, resulting in a somewhat adult tone. The plot is filled with twists, turns, and slides, but the effect is not as successful as in Mr. Lunch Takes a Plane Ride (1993) and Mr. Lunch Borrows a Canoe (1994, both Viking). Both story line and humor seem a bit fuzzy, lacking the sharp wit found in the other titles. Although this book will not have wide appeal, Seibold and Walsh have a following, and their fans will want to meet Space Monkey.?Heide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, WI
