Synopsis: Can Astronaut Girl save the day with a little help from science? Find out as she and her space crew blast off on new adventures in this chapter book series!
Everyone knows that humans can't travel to the sun...at least that's true in the year 2020. But when Astronaut Girl, Wallace, and the Astro crew find themselves orbiting the sun in a solar probe, they soon discover that they've gone almost one thousand years into the future! As they are zipping through space, the heat shields on their spacecraft come loose. They must find a way to fix it and get back to Earth in time for Wallace's family barbecue and before their probe gets baked like a potato!
Exciting, easy-to-read books are the stepping stone a young reader needs to bridge the gap between being a beginner and being fluent.
