Gr 3-5-Japanese-American fourth-grader Akiko continues the interplanetary quest begun in Akiko on the Planet Smoo and Akiko in the Sprubly Islands (both Delacorte, 2000). With her odd assortment of companions, she is following Queen Pwip's instructions to find and rescue the lost prince Froptoppit. Based on a Japanese comic-book series, the episodic plot follows the company across the planet Smoo, as they encounter various weird creatures and strange obstacles. The book does not stand on its own, but takes up right where Islands left off. First, the adventurers have to surmount an enormous wall that stands across their path. Then they must cross a miles-long bridge with a long-abandoned restaurant in the middle. Throughout the story, they are warned of the coming of a mysterious villain; however, when he finally shows up, Akiko's disk-creature companion sends him away with little fuss. There is no plot resolution. The action simply stops abruptly-apparently to be continued in the next volume. The original graphic-novel format is reflected in the amusing black-and-white cartoons. The rivalry among the group members provides some humorous moments and the bizarre features of Smoo are intriguing. Akiko herself is a strong female character whose leadership holds her strange band together. However, this story will be confusing to readers unfamiliar with the previous books.-Elaine E. Knight, Lincoln Elementary Schools, IL

Writer/Illustrator Mark Crilley continues to improve with each book, and this is the best one yet. The characters are great fun, and the situations they encounter are exciting, but nothing that would scare a younger reader. This would make a great bedtime story....
