The Return of Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke

"My favorite part is when Zita meets a skeleton who tries to convince her to try escaping again. The skeleton has keys, drills and saws as toes. He offers them to her but she says no. This part was really funny."

—Alan Moody, 9, Cabot

Summer Pony by Jean Slaughter Doty

"My favorite part was when Ginny really wanted to keep her pony and her parents said it was a lot of work. Then the man who Ginny rented it from had to sell all of his ponies, so for a surprise, Ginny's parents bought the pony for her."

—Emily Hunt, 10, Washington
