My seven year old is a strong reader, but he's also a reluctant reader. It takes some work on my part to find books that will keep him engaged and wanting to read. So, I'm actually ecstatic when I find a book that he doesn't have to be compelled to read!
Most recently, Eudora Space Kid by David Horn, has been keeping my picky little reader satisfied and I could not be happier!

What is Eudora Space Kid About?
Eudora is a typical 3rd grade girl living a very atypical life! She and her older sister Molly were adopted by alien parents when they were very young and they live on a 36 deck AstroLiner in outer space.
Eudora's mother is a lovable dog-like species named Pox from the planet Pox. Her father, Max Jenkins, is an octopus-like species from the planet Pow. But while they may seem like unusual parents, they've raised their girls to dream big and Eudora is determined to become a chief engineer on an AstroLiner.
The book is equal parts snappy humor, space adventures, and STEM themes.
What We Liked About the Book
This is a really fun book for emergent readers ready to jump into chapter books. The chapters are short and there are fantastic black & white illustrations throughout to break up the text and support the story. This makes for an easy and engaging read for kids.
My son especially enjoyed the first person point of view. Following the story from Eudora's perspective made it feel personal and engaging right from the start. We also appreciated that the main character is such a smart, witty, ambitious girl with an aptitude for engineering, math, and science!
And I really love that Eudora Space Kid started as stories that the author told his own daughters at dinner. They loved Eudora's space antics so much that David Horn turned them into this adorable book!
Eudora Space Kid is a good book for kids who are interested in both Science Fiction and Action-Adventure stories. At just 97 pages, it's excellent for kids, ages 6 to 10, looking for an easy and engaging illustrated chapter book.
