Escape from Planet Yastol

Escape from Planet Yastol by Pamela Service
This book tells the story of Josh Higgins, a geeky boy who discovers that the book he wrote for a writing contest, along with all other works of fiction, are actually real.  Some flat blue aliens come looking for him so that they can take a valuable mineral from the Yastol, the planet in Josh’s book.  Josh and his younger sister Maggie are dragged by the blue guys to Yastol and they must escape and somehow make it back home. There are simple illustrations throughout this book, which was a quick and easy read. According to the Number 1 on the cover, it appears the author is planning more books in this series. This review is based on a publisher supplied electronic copy.

Until next time, happy reading, and bon voyage!
