Book Recommendations

Zita the SpacegirlZita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke

While exploring a meteroid crater, Zita and her friend Joseph find a weird box with a red button. Curiosity compels and the button is pushed, only to find out that Joseph gets sucked into another dimension. Zita must travel to space, meeting lots of friends and new creatures, to rescue Joseph. In the process, she may risk her chance of ever returning to Earth! Will she beat the Scriptorians and save Joseph and herself? Find out with this funny and cool-looking comic – the first in a 3-part series. If you like Star Wars or Miyazaki films like My Neighbor Totoro, you’ll love Zita. Find it in the catalog.
