* "The thrills continue as Jasper Dash, Boy Technonaut, goes into the deepest regions of space in search of his long-lost father. . . . Anderson's creative mixture of otherworldly adventure and heartfelt emotion is flawless. Nostalgic, hopeful and most importantly playful, the author has crafted a work that expresses all the pleasures of being young and getting lost in the realms of a great book. The novel doesn't transcend the wacky sci-fi of old that inspired it but rather embraces it and dissects it, celebrating it and exploring why so many people fell in love with these silly worlds and gee-whiz heroes in the first place. Above all, this is a testament to the art of reading, a book that reminds you why you love reading in the first place. Layered, beautiful, smart and achingly funny. In a word, brilliant."--Kirkus Reviews, July 2014, *STARRED REVIEW*
"The latest droll installment in the Pals in Peril series features Jasper Dash, boy technonaut. . . . Meanwhile, footnotes tell of Busby Spence, a fan of the Jasper Dash books during WWII. . . . Anderson layers the narratives skillfully, while Jasper's bravado, his tale's familiar elements (flying saucers, death rays), and the reliably happy ending make Busby's narrative all the more poignant. Illustrated with expressive digital drawings, this entertaining chapter book offers adventure, wit, and heart as well."--Booklist, August 2014
"Boy Technonaut Jasper Dash enlists the help of his friends to find his missing father in this science fiction adventure chock-full of aliens, spaceships, friendship, and plenty of death rays. Cyrus's illustrations add to this romp's rollicking humor."--School Library Journal, August 2014
