Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2–Mickey, a boy who lives on a little moon far out in space, can't wait for the arrival of his pen pal Quiggle, a pickle-green, trumpet-nosed creature from a faraway planet. When Mickey receives a distress call from his friend explaining that his space scooter has crash-landed on a nearby asteroid, the youngster jumps into his spaceship and hurries to the rescue, but Quiggle is nowhere in sight. The mystery is solved when Mickey realizes that he is standing on his pen pal's enormous helmet. Neither one had been aware of their size difference when talking on the interstellar videophone. Working as a team and using the advantages of their individual statures, the friends repair the vehicle and head to Mickey's home as planned. This story has a retro feel to it, but does not seem stale. The text placement, which changes to reflect the action, adds excitement to the pacing. The cartoon illustrations capture the spirit of the tale. Brownlow's choice of colors, outfits, and spacecraft effectively convey a child-friendly version of the universe. A fun extraterrestrial adventure for storytime or individual sharing.–Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Armchair Interviews on March 8, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Mickey Moonbeam is excited to meet his pen pal Quiggle for the first time. When a distress call indicates that Quiggle may not make the meeting, Mickey hops into his spaceship to rescue his friend. What ensues surprises them both.

Mickey Moonbeam is chock full of fun, especially for the six-year-old boy who dreams of rocket boots. The language sparks the imagination with word combinations like "super-zippy-hyper-fast," but doesn't overdo enough to annoy the parents reading aloud. The illustrations are lively, bright and imaginative. And though I'm sure in my adult brain that technologically the story's solution would never work, it makes perfect sense to the intended audience who ask for Mickey Moonbeam again and again.

This story has a nice read aloud quality with no clunky sentences and plenty of room for dramatic reading. Kids are also happy just to page through the book to see the illustrations and make up their own version of the story. For my three to six-year-old crowd and their read-aloud mama, we give it eight thumbs up.

Armchair Interviews says: Mike's other recent picture books include THE BIG WHITE BOOK, I'VE GOT NITS!, LITTLE ROBOT RABBIT, and BOUNCING BABIES.

We had gotten this book from the library but wanted it for our daughter to have becasue she loves the story and illustrations. It was very difficult to find for a reasonable price, but I checked one day and found it here. It is a hardback book, so it will last. The story makes them think about assumptions we make about people that we haven't met in person. Love the story and received the book in perfect condtion and in a timely manner.

Can he help another when size matters? A fun space story encourages kids in grades 2-3 to learn about problem-solving and unusual solutions.
