I will definitely pick up the second book in the series, and I look forward to sharing Jacob Wonderbar with my daughter (currently 5 months old).
I wasn't really expecting the book to be all that believable. I mean, breaking the universe?! But the story moves along at a brisk pace and soon the reader doesn't really care about whether the story is believable. Jacob and his friends, Sarah and Dexter, don't just face strange planets, and space pirates, but also some severe tests of their friendship, which for kids this age is very real. So the characters can be related to, despite the wacky happenings. Recommended for those who love adventure and a fun story.
It puts me in mind of Douglas Adams or Terry Prachett for kids. Very, very fun!
I didn't find any parts lagging, and was entertained until the end. I'm curious to read the next installment to see if Jacob gets any closer to finding his father. And to see if the corn dog makes a second appearance, or is replaced by another taste-delight.
