Space Rocks!

Space Rocks by Tom O'Donnell


The thrilling intergalactic adventures of four kids in space—as told by Chorkle, a hilarious alien!It all happened because of Feeney’s Original Astronaut Ice Cream. Those accursed pink bars entranced me with their sugary magic! But I digress . . .
Life on Gelo was fine until the fur-headed "humans” arrived. They invaded our peaceful asteroid with their loud drill machines and their endless greed, stealing our precious Iridium to take back to their weird looking blue-and-green planet.
Then the mothership took off and four little fur-heads were marooned here. But thank Jalasu Jhuk that Hollins, Becky, Nicki, and Little Gus are actually pretty cool. They have awesome gadgets like hologram games and rocket bikes, and they can pilot starships!
But there’s plenty the juvenile humans don’t know, like how to fight a ferocious thyss-cat or ride a giant usk-lizard. They’re decidedly terrible at dealing with my stink-gland.
Luckily the Earthlings have me, Chorkle, and all five of my eyes to look after them.
If only I knew how to help them get back home . . .

At this point, I should have returned home to avoid the possibility of detection. But I didn't.

Top Ten is an original feature/weekly meme created here at
The Broke and the Bookish that features a great bookish top ten every week.

My Top Ten Reasons I love Blogging

1. Talking about books. I have an outlet for my book obsession.

2. Meeting/talking to other bloggers. Its nice to know I am not alone in my book obsession. 
3. Gives me more of a reason to indulge in my book obsessions. I need more time to read because I have to blog more. 
4. Reasons to buy more books. I need to get this book, it just came out and my readers need to know my opinions. 
5. I have a valid reason to attend all book conventions I can get to. I have to know what is coming out, what is hot, and I can't do that if I don't go.
6. I love being a walking card catalog. Its fun when working with teens at the library and I can spout off book titles and author by the "you know the one with the....) 
7. My best friend is a teen librarian. Is there any explanation needed for this one. 
8. Books are just great, awesome, and the more time I am on blogs or writing mine, he more I can just sit and appreciate the books. 
9. I have a reason to hog the computer. In my family its a biggie. 
10. I just love it and I am not sure if my life would be complete without it.
