Synopsis

Oh No, Astro! by Matt Roeser

Asteroids! Planets! Astronauts! In this charming debut picture book, a grumpy asteroid named Astro is thrown out of orbit and takes an unexpected journey through space!Astro is a cranky asteroid who just wants everyone to respect his personal boundaries. But when a satellite knocks Astro out of orbit, he is forced to embark on an epic adventure through space...whether he wants to or not! Filled with playful illustrations and tons of cool facts about space, this picture book is a must-have for all the future astronauts who are ready to journey through the galaxy.

Reviews

A fun story for adventure seekers and space fans. -- School Library Connection On the first read-through, some of the physics involved may be a bit complex for younger readers, although a spread of Space Facts at the end will help clear up lingering questions and perhaps pique the interest of would-be scientists. But this won't keep even the most science-averse young readers from enjoying the unamused Astro's voyage through the galaxy, or from demanding another read. -- Booklist Informative, dynamic, rich in vocabulary, and quite funny. -- Kirkus Reviews The precocious narration...coupled with Astro's arch speaking style...is great fun to read aloud, and fellow newcomer Woodard's Jetsons-esque style and bright palette bring just the right Space Age atmosphere to the story. -- Publishers Weekly
