From School Library Journal: Grade 1-2-- `` `Super nebular!' '' exclaims eight-year-old Ricky as he opens a huge box of Booster blocks. `` `I must be dreaming,' '' he gasps when the model he builds in his bedroom becomes a ``real live rocketship!!!'' with an On-Board Computer (O. B. C.) that invites him to climb in. Off to outer space they blast, on an exploratory adventure laced with misinformation (``Stars, planets, and natural satellites . . . all belong to our solar system''), confusing turns of phrase and downright howlers--`` `That was a meteoroid, Ricky, O. B. C. breathlessly said as he leveled off the rocket. A meteoroid is a piece of rock or stone . . . ' '' In the second episode (and there are more to come), O. B. C. takes Ricky on a Journey beneath the Deep Blue Sea to show the variety of life there (young readers are left to wrestle unassisted with the word ``coelenterates,'' and to decry the perils of pollution while promoting the extraction of oil and other natural resources. Both of these books were produced on a Mac, and the cartoon illustrations have a video-game look: stiff, repeated shapes, a limited repertoire of facial expressions, mechanical lighting , and little sense of motion. `` The Magic School Bus '' (Scholastic) sails effortlessly past these underpowered, self-billed ``print media vehicles.''-- John Peters, New York Pub.
