What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Funfair Moon, the outer space amusement park where Emily lives, has the highest roller coasters, the most dizzying Tilt-A-Whirls, and the scariest ghost train in the galaxy. Normally, Emily’s heroes Jinks and O’Hare keep it in tip-top shape. But the day the funfair inspector comes, everything goes wrong. Peeploid’s Merry-Go-Round and Fudge Shoppe is spinning out of control, gravity has reversed on the biggest slide, and there are strange little spiny black balls all over the place! Can Emily help fix the carnival before the inspector closes it for good?

Human Development Degree, Book-loving aunt

This book is the story of a chaos-filled day at an out-of-this-world amusement park! An especially perfect read for kiddos who love to tinker. I love that Emily knows her passion and works hard to make it happen. She shows a lot of bravery and courage in order to save the theme park!
