Product Details

Praise

Nothing if not action-packed, and yet it is provocative, profound, and wickedly funny as well. Yansky takes on questions philosophical, ecological (the Sanginians abhor machines and won’t be cutting down any more rainforests; is the Earth better off?), religious, moral, and social. The satire is right on target.
—Horn Book

Effective worldbuilding. Plot is primary here: It’s carefully constructed for maximum suspense and the major literary characteristic in this certifiable page-turner…The climax is exciting and guaranteed to please readers.
—Kirkus Reviews

Yansky ably balances abject horror with grim, sharp humor, illustrating the fact that it is difficult, even in unimaginable circumstances, to be depressed and somber constantly.
—Bulletin of the Center of Children’s Books

Filled with thought-provoking topics, including slavery, colonization, technology, religion, and ecology, this short sci-fi read is as rewarding as it is entertaining.
—Booklist

[An] this exceptional, wryly funny, and often very powerful book.
—Through the Looking Glass Children’s Book Reviews
