Midwest Book Review of Galactic Academy of Science Series

The Midwest Book Review on THL’s

Galactic Academy of Science series:

“The first four books of the Galactic Academy of Science series blend elements of science fiction, time-travel, and mystery into fast-paced novels ideal for young people ages 9-13. Pendred Noyce’s “The Desperate Case of the Diamond Chip” (9780985000806) sends young Mae and Clinton on a time-traveling trip to teach them more about how science and electronics work – when they’re not dodging the gestapo or skydiving from a plane! Barnas Monteith’s “The Furious Case of the Fraudulent Fossil” (9780985000851) takes Benson and Anita on a museum visit, which spirals into a series of adventures from confronting Chinese imperial soldiers to exploring the harsh landscape of the American West. Pendred Noyce & Roberta Baxter’s “The Vicious Case of the Viral Vaccine” (9780985000875) has Mae and Clinton witness humanity’s historic battles against lethal diseases such as smallpox, rabies, polio, as well as the pioneering work of people like Louis Pasteur, Jonas Salk, Maurice Hilleman and more to make the world a healthier place. In Barnas Monteith & Roberta Baxter’s “The Harrowing Case of the Hackensack Hacker” (9780985000882), Anita and Benson must work together to save not only the Galactic Academy of Science, but also the Earth from a rampaging computer virus! Peppered with occasional color illustrations, all four books strive to educate as well as entertain, and are excellent addition to public, middle school, and junior high school library collections.”
