A NEW MIDDLE GRADE SERIES FROM CHRONICLE BOOKS
By Jon Scieszka & Steven Weinberg
It’s happening now – humans have gone too far, wrecking planet Earth. We might need to find a new planet. But who could possibly help us do that?
Lucky for us, back in the 1980s, NNASA (NotNASA) created four secret super-powered Animal Astronauts — AlphaWolf, SmartHawk, LaserShark, and StinkBug.
They were built to be automatically launched into space to check out possible Goldilocks planets if things on Earth ever got too bad. Unlucky for us, things just got too bad.
The AstroNuts first destination, the Plant Planet, looks just right. It has oxygen, shelter, water, and no obvious intelligent life. But what if plant life has a mind of its own? And what if that mind has one very scary plan for our AstroNuts?
AstroNuts Book 1 officially goes on sale fall 2019
