Title: Cakes in Space by Philip Reeve
Astra's family is moving—to a whole new planet. And what does any kid need on moving day? Snacks! But when Astra asks her spaceship's computer to whip up the ultimate dessert, it makes cakes so amazing that they come to life. Now these cake-monsters are destroying the ship! Can Astra and her robot friend stop them in time? Or are these terrible treats a recipe for disaster?
|The Phoenix Book Club - 5th through 8th graders
