Zack is moving to a planet called Nebulon with his mom, dad, and twin sisters. Zack does not want to go there. His parents say he can’t go back to Earth. When Zack is on his way to Nebulon, he falls asleep. He has a nightmare. He dreams that his teacher is a giant two-headed snake and his classmates are monsters. Then he runs out of the classroom. He finds a pizzeria. He gets a large pie but when he gets it, he sees there are worms on the pizza, so he runs out. Then he wakes up. When they land on Nebulon, they meet a man named Fred Stevens, his dad’s new boss. Fred Stevens showed them where they were going to get their car. Once they get their car, Zack thinks it is cool. After that, they get to their house. They go into a flying elevator. First the elevator takes them to the kitchen. Then they meet a robot named Ira (Indoor Robotic Assistant). Zack wants a drink so Ira gets him lemonade and the cup has Zack’s face on it. Then Zack and his twin sisters go to check out their rooms. Then they go to the kitchen to have dinner. Zack eats a pepperoni pizza, the twins eat spaghetti, and their parents have grilled salmon. Zack tells his family that Nebulon isn’t so bad after all. Then, Zack’s mom says that he had to go to school the next day. He is disappointed and scared because he remembers his nightmare about school and he is worried that nobody will like him at school and that they will think he is weird. The next day at his new school…You have to read the book to find out if Zack makes friends and if he will start liking Nebulon.
I like this book because there was this robot named Ira and Ira gave you everything you would like. I would want Ira because then I could have whatever I want. I think that when Zack was dreaming about the classroom full of monsters was cool because I like how the illustrator drew the monsters. I feel bad for Zack because Zack was sad when he left Earth and I would be sad if I left Earth.
I would recommend this book for ages 7 to 12 who like space, adventures, and robots. When you read this book, you will see there are cool things like a flying elevator, a machine that gives you whatever juice you want, you name it!
