Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 3-Introduced in Mousetronaut (S & S, 2012), pint-size ace Meteor is back, secretly training for America's first human mission to Mars. When he doesn't make the crew list, he stows away and carefully stays hidden as he observes onboard life during the six-month journey to the red planet. Once in orbit, a failed engine means the landing will be scrubbed-the one remaining engine isn't strong enough to carry a human. That's when Meteor offers his small self as mission savior and becomes the first mouse on Mars. Payne's signature mixed-media artwork is realistic yet playful and gives readers a glimpse into space flight with excellent use of spreads. The themes of persistence and how immaterial one's size is are strongly present and will resonate with children. The four-page afterword discusses the history of Mars and mankind, what a flight to Mars would entail, and the benefits of space exploration, and offers details about the planet. While preschoolers will enjoy the tale, the afterword also makes this title perfect to share with primary-grade students in units on planets and space exploration.-Marge Loch-Wouters, La Crosse Public Library, WIα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

Meteor, the star of Mousetronaut (2012), is excited to accompany other astronauts on a six-month mission to Mars. He has exercised, studied, and eavesdropped until he feels more than ready to take on this new challenge. So when the names of the multiethnic and multigender crew are announced, he is shocked and disappointed to learn he is not among the chosen. Undeterred, he manages to slip onboard and hides away for the duration of the flight to the Red Planet. When a problem arises that can potentially end the mission, Meteor comes up with the solution and, of course, saves the day. Large, delightful mixed-media illustrations combine realism (Mission Control) and cartoon (Meteor lifting weights, packing his suitcase, and floating through the cabin). A four-page afterword by the author tells the history of and the potential for the exploration of Mars. Children will enjoy the tale of how the smallest member of the crew becomes a national hero in the yearlong journey. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Maryann Owen

As a follow-on to the first Mousetronaut book, this is another can-do tale of how everyone (including Meteor) can perform great deeds despite their size. My children ask me to read this book repeatedly and, I hope, it is beginning to inculcate a knowledge of space as well as realizing they can do anything they set their minds to do.

Specifically asked the 6-yo which one of the Moustronaut books he liked better, and without hesitation, he picked this one. I agree with one reviewer that the writing was a little stilted, but I don't think the 6-yo cared. The book had great information about the space program and I ended up learning a lot. Indeed, the 4-page afterword taught me enough about the potential issues involved with a manned mission to Mars, that I was able to keep up my end of a very lively discussion of space exploration with a 6 yo.

Format: Hardcover
Adorable illustrations and fun story-line make Mousetronaut Goes to Mars a great read aloud for elementary age students. The appendix has a lengthy and informative section about Mars's terrain, orbit, also Russian and the United States space attempts (failures and successes) throughout the years. Parents and educators can use this as additional science curriculum when covering the planets, typically in 5th grade.

Mousetronaut is a lovable smart character. My three year old grandson loves this story! Beautifully illustrated! I purchased thus book after reading him the original story. Both are very entertaining and educational. Space exploration is still alive.

Purchased for 5-7 year old grandsons, whose father is a captain for Southwest Airlines. When the books arrived Dad read them to the boys several times. The part for adults makes the book more than just "a kid's book."
