Red is a smart & fun heroine

Red's Planet: Book 1: A World Away from Home - Eddie Pittman



Red is a spunky 10-year old girl who runs away from her foster home, looking for a place to belong and ends up abducted by an alien spaceship. When the spaceship crashes on an alien planet, Red is stuck with a crazy bunch of aliens that she must learn to live with. The artwork is gorgeous, bright, and colorful and adds to the humor of the story.


I really liked this one. Red is smart and headstrong. The other aliens are funny, including two that look like the man-eating plant from Little Shop of Horrors, and a cute gray alien with huge eyes. 


Kids will enjoy this adventure.
