This fast paced adventure/science fiction story combines real world physics with a fantastic plot. * secret word at the beginning of each chapter written in an alien alphabet * alphabet decoder at the end of the book lets you decode a secret message from Nojo
The kids in this book make Indiana Jones look like a couch potato and every chapter is a wild ride. It's a perfect read for second to fourth graders. It has short chapters and tons of illustrations, so it is also a great chapter book for reading to the 5 to 7 year olds. -- Island Reporter
This is the best new chapter book series I've seen for boys 6 to 10. It's pure adventure and pure fun. With all the illustrations it is the perfect pre-Harry Potter book -- like Men In Black and Indiana Jones rolled into one story. -- STAIF review
I loved the first book in this series and this new one is even better. I read the whole thing in one fast sitting and I can't imagine a second to fifth grader putting it down. The adventure is break-neck paced and there's an illustration on every page. -- PB Books

Best adventure story for kids Jul 25, 2008
This series of books just rocks! I would recommend this set of books for anyone with kids. My 5 yo loves the stories - can't read yet, but enjoys being read to and loves the illustrations. Every page has a picture and the chapters are short. The storyline is really fun - searching time and space for the pillar of Knowledge! Way cool!
Fun, creative sequel. Mar 9, 2007
Love hearing more about the adventures of Jake, Scott and their ET friend, Nojo, a space archeologist from the distant constellation of Orion. I'm a big sci-fi fan and look forward to more "Galactic Treasure Hunts" from Jamie Childress and Chris Braun. Also planning on buying more of this series for myself, my friends and their grandchildren, nieces and nephews. I'm amazed by the creativity of the "code".
