Here's what parents, kids and reviewers have said about previous collections:
"There are not very many action, adventure, superhero, or sci-fi stories that feature girls, but there needs to be. I have read this whole book and now I have become even more interested in space and robots and things like that." ~ Lily F. (10 years old)
“I backed the book for my 6-year-old daughter. I had to pry it out of her hands to get her to go to bed. She has declared it her favorite book.” ~ Gary D.
“My daughter is on the couch presently, reading her copy, which I handed to her approximately 3 minutes ago. She is engrossed. Thank you.” ~ Matthew M.
“Entertaining, varied and enrapturing - my young wards for the weekend have positively devoured the book and I'll admit enjoying it myself once they very reluctantly set it down.” ~ Andro B.
"While I was funding you last night, my 8-yr old daughter came by and asked what I was doing. When I explained that I was funding the second volume of this, she said that she liked the first volume so much that she wanted to give you $5 of her own money, so she went and got her bank, and I upped my donation by $5. :-)" ~ Warren B.
"I highly recommend this collection. I love the variety of young voices it contains. From kids making first contact to piloting starships, the range of adventure is fantastic." ~ West Coast Book Reviews
