Review: Legends of Zita the Spacegirl


Legends of Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke

Zita the Spacegirl returns in this sequel. She is still with Piper, who continues to exploit her, but longs to just get away. When a robot mimics her, she gets the perfect chance to slip away from being on display. Mouse follows after her, and we learn a bit about his background. This story focuses on fewer characters than the first novel, and so is stronger. I always look forward to more Zita! It's great to have a good girl role model in books.  The illustrations are just as wonderful, maybe even a bit less cluttered than the first book. Highly recommended! This review is based on a publisher supplied electronic copy.

Until next time, bon voyage and happy reading!
