Publisher's Summary

It's a murder mystery on the moon in this humorous and suspenseful space adventure from the author of Belly Up and Spy School.

Like his fellow lunarnauts - otherwise known as Moonies - living on Moon Base Alpha, twelve-year-old Dashiell Gibson is famous the world over for being one of the first humans to live on the moon.

And he's bored out of his mind. Kids aren't allowed on the lunar surface, meaning they're trapped inside the tiny moon base with next to nothing to occupy their time - and the only other kid Dash's age spends all his time hooked into virtual reality games.

Then Moon Base Alpha’s top scientist turns up dead. Dash senses there's foul play afoot, but no one believes him. Everyone agrees Dr. Holtz went onto the lunar surface without his helmet properly affixed, simple as that. But Dr. Holtz was on the verge of an important new discovery, Dash finds out, and it's a secret that could change everything for the Moonies - a secret someone just might kill to keep.

Reader

If you could sum up Space Case in three words, what would they be?

Adventure, excitement, cliff-hanger

Who was your favorite character and why?

Dash and Kira work well together.

Would you be willing to try another one of Gibson Frazier’s performances?

His reading is pretty dull and monotone. I would like to see more acting in his reading.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I am using this as a 6th grade class novel whole read.

Classroom Hit!

We did this in class as an audible book while following along with the hard copy and my third grade students couldn't get enough. Very fun and exciting book.

Highly Entertaining!

My son who hates reading, even listening to books was asking to stay up late to continue listening. He loved it so much that I listened to it and he couldn't wait to find out where I was in the story so that we could talk about it!

AMAZING

I loved how the story took place on the moon and that is was just so interesting I recommend this book to all.

I the whole moon base alpha direction and how the murderer was hard to find. If you read this book picture yourself on the moon as dash and don't let anyone spoil it.

Fantastic Story

Would you consider the audio edition of Space Case to be better than the print version?

Narrator was fantastic. My 8 year old daughter loved the story and could have listened to it in one sitting. I imagine reading it would be as fun as listening.

What did you like best about this story?

Great characters.

Which scene was your favorite?

The last chapter.

Any additional comments?

We can't wait for the next Moon Base Alpha story!
