Discover the mysteries of deep space with the Alien of Astronomy! A fast-paced, action & adventure chapter book series for children aged 8-11. (A must-read for fans of Magic Tree House.)
Uncle Larry’s Antique Shop & Junkyard is a magical world where everything has a price–and the magic is in the learning. In this junkyard adventure, Eli and Grace explore outer space!
After Uncle Larry gives Eli and Grace their “magic junk” items — sunglasses, plastic cups, and an old astronomy book — they step through the junkyard door and into a spaceship! First up is a quick stop to see the Crab Nebula, followed by a wild ride to watch solar flares explode on the surface of the sun, then it’s time to discover deep space.
With some help from Zip the alien, an astronomy teacher, Eli and Grace visit famous constellations like Little Dipper and Big Dipper, Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, and Orion the Hunter. Along the way, they must solve a series of space riddles, then take their chances with a Black Hole, if they ever hope to make it back to Uncle Larry’s store– “Once you begin your adventure…you must finish it. No matter what.”
