Somebody’s got to save the known Universe. Again.Art Mumby, his mostly irritating younger sister, Myrtle, and their mother have been invited to take a vacation at Starcoss, the finest sea-bathing resort in the entire Asteriod Belt. Just one problem . . . there are no seas anywhere in the Asteroid Belt, and that’s just the first sign that the hotel is not what it seems. Sure enough, Art and family quickly find themselves face to face with French spies, Yankee rebels and man-eating starfish, not to mention an awful lot of sinister top hats. As they travel to the future and back to prehistoric Mars, it’s all Art can do to keep his head about him. Which is all the more important considering everyone else is losing theirs.

The first sequel to Larklight. The Mumby family, minus Mr. Mumby, go to the asteroid belt to the hotel called Starcross. Unfortunately, there are secrets there and a lot of danger. Just as enjoyable as the first book, in my opinion. I’m looking forward to reading the third. [Oct. 2009]

Little sis again read first. Arthur continues to be a tremendously enjoyable narrator. Fun, silly and just a tad confusing at times.

I'm just insanely fond of these two books; can't wait for a third***2009 July 26We've begun volume two, and are braced for a stirring adventure. I'm just loving the way mother tries to put things back in some semblance of order.
