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?

Note that this list is not exhaustive and there may be concepts in this book that are not included or have been insufficiently or incorrectly detailed here.
Emily knows what she likes and what job she wants when she grows up, and she even asks to “shadow” the repair team at the amusement park she loves. Have a fun talk with your child about what they like to do, what kind of careers they might like, and some practical goals or steps they could take to make it there.
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!
