23 pages. Easy reader. Graphic novel.
Aaron is having a blast playing with his action figures in his backyard when he discovers an empty spaceship next door. What little boy could resist climbing inside and pushing buttons? Definitely not Aaron! Of course the button he pushed sent him into space on a course for the moon. He lands in Area 52, a very mysterious place on the dark side of the moon. It is top secret so I can't tell you anymore than that!
This simple and colorful graphic novel is perfect for beginning readers. And a perk in all Comics Land books is the bonus material at the end which includes: "Word Power" a fabulous vocabulary list, questions to make the reader really think about what they just read, "Game Time", and a how to draw section.
