Given Stephanie's background in a multitude of Sciences, this story uses a perfect blending of many of them to tell a delightful, simple- yet not simplistic - tale spanning many generations of a familiar, yet alien life form. It also imparts a valuable life-lesson: That nothing is forever, everything changes, but life endures all hardships nonetheless.
The characters are engaging, the story is enchanting, and the only fault I could possibly find is that it ends so soon. At 28 pages, this perfectly illustrates how a modern fairy-tale should be written. I was quite reminded of Dr. Robert Forward's "Dragon's Egg" as I was reading Stephanie's story. Once you read this, you will understand why Stephanie Osborn is held in such high esteem by both fans and her fellow writers alike. I highly recommend this book!
It is fair to say that this book is based somewhat on a true story. NASA does know about these beings. NASA has even included them in space missions. The author tells how and why and reveals everything.
I would not hesitate to give this book to my nephew in middle school. It is fun, wholesome, educational, and nothing short of inspired. Ms. Osborn, please never put down the pen.
I enjoyed "The More Things Change" immensely, and believe if you give it a chance, you will also.
Five stars, recommended.
Note: I received a free copy of "The More Things Change" by the author for the purposes of an honest review -- which I have just given you. (All hail the FCC.)
The cover art is clever; colorful and enticing.
The story is broken into only a few short chapters, and is a fairly quick read, but will grab you tightly and will not let go until the end. The story of Gibblich and his family will have you laughing with them, and crying with them. You will even find yourself on the edge of your seat during a few tense moments. Stephanie Osborn is one of the rapidly dwindling breed of Great Storytellers. This one is my children's next bedtime story. It's perfectly laid out in short chapters for bedtime material.
I even found myself begging for more at the end of this beautiful tale.
