Jacob Wonderbar and the Cosmic Space Kapow by Nathan Bransford is a boy-friendly space adventure story with plenty of wacky capers. Jacob is a troublemaker at school and he teams up with his best friends Dexter and Sarah for some non-stop fun, initiated when a man in a silver suit trades a spaceship for a corn dog.
Yep, that’s the kind of randomness you can expect from Jacob Wonderbar.
I thought it felt a little too directionless, but I read it aloud to Milo and he loved it. It’s turned into a series and I’m sure I’ll be reading the others to Milo.
Tonight at dinner for some reason he was talking about having children and Abby asked him what he would name his kids.
His answer? Jacob, Dexter and Sarah.
