Staff Picks

Christopher, the son of RVDL librarian Jade, is reading

CatStronauts by Drew Brockington

He reports, "These books are adventurous, funny, and a little scary when the power goes out on earth. In the first book, the power goes out across the earth and the CatStronauts are tasked with building a solar power plant on the moon to send electricity back to earth via 'advanced microwave technology.'"

Christopher was always super excited whenever the next book in the series came home for him. There are currently 5 books in the series and Christopher is looking forward to more being published!
