"A must-have . . . A winning mix of fun and fact-readers will be eager for the next mission." -- Kirkus Reviews Starred Review
"This first in a new science fiction series checks key boxes: it is funny, full of nonstop action, and jammed with plenty of science factoids."--School Library Journal
"This book is packed with absurdity, misadventure, and science . . . with wit and kid appeal guarantees that this will be a popular choice."-- Booklist
"Fun and silly with a heart of science! Give this to your curious readers." --Jennifer L. Holm, New York Times-bestselling author of The Fourteenth Goldfish and the Babymouse series

"AstroNuts is the perfect mix of goofy characters, hard science, and farts. An absolute delight!" --Gene Luen Yang, Ambassador for Young People's Literature and winner of the Printz Award for American Born Chinese

"The end of humankind is upon us, and who do we send to save us?!? Certainly not a human! Wickedly funny, a story about climate change that doesn't come off as preachy. Kids will love this, and adults would be better off reading it too." --LeUyen Pham, illustrator of the Princess in Black series

"Jon Scieszka, the groundbreaking storyteller and master of wit, brings us a smart and hilarious adventure. AstroNuts doesn't just break new ground-it breaks outer space! Brilliant." --Dav Pilkey, bestselling author of the Dog Man and Captain Underpants series
"Climate change might seem dire right now, but thankfully (at least in Scieszka's tale), we've got four super animal astronauts who may be able to save us all. [Astronuts is] a high-spirited adventure with humor aplenty."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
