One grumpy asteroid named Astro is about to go on an unexpected journey. When Astro is hit by a satellite, it is thrown out of orbit and off on an adventure, one that ends with a serious crash landing.
A fun fictional take on how meteors end up on earth and their journey through space, Oh No, Astro! is perfect for the budding astronaut or astronomer. I liked that Astro was a bit grumpy, which felt different for reasons that would seem silly to explain. There are a lot of great space facts in the endmatter, which extends the age range of this book to upper elementary.
