It is a nice tongue-in-cheek send up of TOS.
Despite its art and language style, and even its form factor, it is *NOT* a book that you can read to/with your children. Replete with adult concepts and language (e.g. "dead Tellarite", "murderous children controlled by a megalomaniacal non-corporeal entity"), it will not be (as hoped) a gateway to introduce my kids to the show I love and will one day share with them. As such, it has no re-readbility.
Fun once. Appropriate for adults only; not a gateway for youngsters to get excited about Star Trek. If I do not give it away -or- redact it, it will languish on the shelf as an $8 "one off".
This is a book by a Trekkie for other Trekkies, in the end. The facial expressions are precious, and I will never get over the image of Spock in a rubber duckie inner-tube (no spoilers!).
I must say I was surprised by how many (essential) anecdotes from TOS that are crammed into this thing. An actual child's book would only have a fraction of the pages found here! An adult's attention span can of course accommodate so much more than a small kid's, and more we are given. It's not novel-length or anything even remotely close to that, but it has more than enough pages that you can just pick it up from time to time, and go for a good while before you run out of new pages to look at in it.
All told, this book will make you SMILE. This book will make you giggle, this book will make you LAUGH! And it makes suuuuch a good gift. :)
My wife and I liked it. I read it aloud and the text worked well. The art is spot-on.
If the book had been a little longer I would have given it five stars.
Not already a Star Trek fan? You probably won't "get" it. Have a friend who is? This will make an excellent gift.
