For siblings Lori, Ray, and Charlie Holland, a family trip to the Roswell area of New Mexico includes a visit to the UFO Museum, which will lead them on an adventure of a lifetime. Upon returning to their home on a Texas farm, the Holland children are reunited with their special pets—Star, a cat; Suzi, a dog; and Frankie, a ferret. Within a few short weeks they are invited by a family of extraterrestrials to join them on a three-day trip into outer space.
Told from the unique point of view of Lori’s cat, Space Critters tells the story of how these pets become travelers through time and space alongside their owners. Join their adventures as they encounter a group of dangerous jellyfish, time travel to see the history of Earth, discover how the children’s grandfather is connected to the extraterrestrials and the Roswell crash, and host the extraterrestrial family for a stay in their home.
In this first in a series of adventures, Space Critters blends science fiction and the paranormal into a young adult series from a debut novelist who is one to watch.
