"Melinda Long delivers mystery, humor, and science nicely wrapped in an exciting and fast-moving plot. Lots of energy and plenty of peanut butter. Children will love this book."--Nelly Hecker, Furman University
"Melinda Long's latest book is a fun combination of science and imagination. Young readers will identify with Art and his friends as young science nerds with vivid imaginations, and everyone will appreciate the 'Art Adds' science facts at the end of each chapter. I can't wait to share this new series with my students!"--Heather Thore, South Carolina Association of School Librarians
"What a fun way to learn about the night sky and the scientists who have helped us decipher it! Short pages of scientific facts nest inside this rollicking story of good friends with extraterrestrials on their minds. You'll enjoy the main character, Art Smart, a wise cracking fourth grade 'science nerd.'"-- Kate Salley Palmer, author/illustrator of The Pink House
"A brief but lively episode for young STEM pullers, easily bearing a substantial informational load."--Kirkus Reviews
