the Bad Guys in Alien VS Bad Guys #6 by Aaron Blabey
My first venture into this young reader series. It was funny and the humour totally appropriate to a 7-10 year old.
The bad guys, who don't really seem all that bad, are stuck on an alien ship. Escape is going to be difficult. If they can stick together, they might all get out of it. Friendship plays and important part of this story.
I would happily recommend this series for any young reader.
