Publishers Description Know Your Star-Fighters Beamer: California transplant to a weird Midwestern town. Feels like he s living on another planet. Scilla: the gangly tomboy next door. Ghoulie: the class nerd. Add one spaceship-shaped tree house capable of taking them most anywhere in the universe. Hop in and blast off for fantastic outer space adventures in Star-Fighters of Murphy Street---the quirky, funny, fast-paced new trilogy by Robert West. Taking a shortcut home from school, the Star-Fighters are chased by a horrible one-eyed creature into a cavern that houses an entire miniature world. Everything is animated---cars, trucks, moon, clouds, stars---but no one is at the controls. Who would make such a thing and then abandon it? The Star-Fighters search leads them on a wild adventure to a palatial mansion within a wintry jungle that hides a terrible secret---a secret that defines the limits of trusting God."

My 12-Year-Old Son LOVED This! Aug 1, 2009
My 12-year-old son LOVED this book! He received the set as a Christmas gift. He said it was well-written and an exciting story, plus "awesome, amazing, and soooo cool. Every kid should read it." He can't wait to get to read the rest of the series. He is typically a non-fiction reader who focuses more on science, history, and biographies, but this work of fiction captured his attention. He read it in just a few days--he could hardly put it down! He enjoyed discussing the book with his dad and me, his grandparents, and his friends. He thought the story was very interesting and needed to be shared. As a Christian parent, I like that there are no "issues" I have to worry about--no hidden political agendas. Just good clean fun. I don't have to worry about him having nightmares or unnecessary fears when he's reading this author. And there's no swearing or "romance." He's not going to pick up on bad attitudes or bad behaviors from a character who misbehaves the entire book until the end when he finally learns a lesson--not in this book, but so common today in children's books and cartoons. It's a wonderful series for children of discerning parents. My younger son is currently working his way through the book now, and his description of the book is, "It's a very exciting, interesting and fun book."
Excellent read for pre-teen kids - and adults! Jun 20, 2008
I bought this book along with the last in the Star-Fighters of Murphy Street series, after finding the first one so engaging. My pre-teen grandson couldn't put volume one down and has already finished this and volume three and he has just been out of school for a week! I have read all three books and highly recommend them for anyone wanting a wholesome adventure series for their kids.
