I added the large print version here because there are no holds, but you could request the regular print size version as well.

My almosy 7 yr old is throughly enjoying reading this book. Its an adventure but full of space facts. The action moves at just the right speed to keep a young reader engaged. My son does not have a natural love of reading, but enjoys this content so much that he reads anyway. :)

George is being raised by parents who believe all technology is just, plain wrong. No TV at their house, no telephone, and very odd food in George's lunchbox. And then new neighbors move in next door--a scientist studying computers and astronomy and his daughter, Annie, have a super computer which works as a key to exploring different parts of the universe. George and Annie have adventures all over our solar system while they fight a mad scientist who wants to destroy the earth. Good story with cute drawings and absolutely phenomenal pictures of the moons of Saturn and Jupiter, etc. Science fiction with a good amount of science mixed in. 3rd or 4th grade and up.
