Description

Middle school in space! An alien dog! A mad scientist! Hundreds of illustrations! Sci-Fi Junior High is galactically good! James Patterson presents a hilarious space adventure featuring an average human kid getting into a universe of trouble.

Kelvin is the new kid at Sci-Fi Junior High--a floating space station filled with alien kids form across the universe. And he arrived just in time for the annual school dance: The Galactic Get Down!

Kelvin is desperate to take luminous Luna (her species literally glows), but now that his secret about not being a Mega Supergenius is out, Kelvin doesn't have a shot. He has to think of a way to become super cool so everyone forgets he lied about his average intelligence...

Cue mad scientist Erik Failenheimer's escape from his asteroid prison, an army of Pinions (any similarities to the MinionsTM is purely coincidental), and a battle to save Sci-Fi Junior High from imminent doom. Let's dance!

"Saving the universe has never been so much fun!" -- Gordon Korman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of 39 Clues and Masterminds on Sci-Fi Junior High.

Praise For Sci-Fi Junior High: Crash Landing

Praise for Sci-Fi Junior High: Crash Landing:

"Corny jokes, wacky high jinks, a supervillain bunny, and engaging illustrations keep the pages turning.... Wacky out-of-this-world fun."—Kirkus Reviews

"Black and white illustrations...give Martin and Seegert's work the accessibility of a beginner's graphic novel and provide an extra punch to the fart jokes and wordplay this story thrives on. ... Overall, this is a funny take on middle school that strikes a chord closer to home than its intergalactic setting."—Bulletin for the Center for Children's Books

"More riotous high jinks on the high frontier."—Booklist

"A diverse crew of extraterrestrial life forms [are] amusingly brought to life in Martin's comic panels.... Echoes of comic books, Star Wars, and 1950s sci-fi classics resound."—Kirkus Reviews

"Easily digestible segments, [and] sheaves of cartoons...are interspersed throughout the text, boosting the comedic action into even higher orbit. A crowd pleaser."
Booklist

"A fun [...] extraterrestrial adventure.... Punchy black-and-white spot illustrations and comics sequences appear throughout, playing up the slapstick humor."—Publisher's Weekly

"It's a classic trope executed so funnily that it manages to seem fresh.
Amusing black and white illustrations pepper the text. There's plenty
here to warrant another outing with Kelvin in a sequel."—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
