Part of the Alien Adventures of Finn Caspian Series

The Alien Adventures of Finn Caspian #3: The Uncommon Cold Synopsis

Finn and Explorer Troop 301 get trapped on a planet riddled with viral robots in the third book of this funny chapter book series based on the award-winning kids' podcast! Finn's best robot bud, Foggy, comes down with a weird virus while exploring a planet full of dancing robots. But he won't let Finn help him. Foggy only wants to dance the Hokey Pokey with his new robot friends! Now Finn and Explorers Troop 301 have to find a cure before the robots attack. But can Finn also fix his friendship with Foggy? Or will his robot BFF stay on the two-stepping planet forever? Blast off into a brand-new adventure inspired by the popular award-winning kids' podcast! Like the podcast, the books are sort of like Scooby-Doo meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer in space. The story centers on Finn Caspian, an 8-year-old boy aboard The Famous Marlowe 280 Interplanetary Exploratory Space Station. He and his friends Abigail, Elias, and Vale are Explorers Troop 301, taking off from the Marlowe to explore uncharted planets, help the occasional alien, and solve a mystery that threatens to destroy the Marlowe. The books in this series are for kids ages 7 to 12 looking for a funny illustrated story to tear through. They contain no violence, a little bit of suspense, and some aliens who are real chuckleheads...

The Alien Adventures of Finn Caspian #3: The Uncommon Cold Press Reviews

Praise for the podcast: So good that your parents won't want to leave the room once they start. -- New York Times Praise for the podcast: The addictive new science-fiction podcast for kids. -- Chicago Tribune Witty and warm, and the subtle pokes at sci-fi tropes temper some of the more obvious messages about the importance of working together and respecting differences. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
