Space Taxi: Archie Takes Flight
by Wendy Mass (Author), Michael Brawer (Author), and Elise Gravel (Illustrator)
Booktalk: It’s not every day a regular kid like Archie gets to wake up at midnight. But today is Take Your Kid to Work Day, and Archie is finally allowed to ride along in his dad’s taxi cab. He has been waiting eight years, eight months, and eight days for this moment to arrive.
But he’s about to discover his dad is no ordinary cab driver…In fact, he drives an intergalactic space taxi! All night long, he shuttles aliens from one corner of the universe to another. And being a space taxi copilot is no easy task: Archie must steer them into wormholes, keep them from crashing into planets, deal with a very unusual cat…and save the universe from an evil mastermind!
“Dad!” I shout. “Can you please tell me what is going on? I thought you were a taxi driver!”
“I am, son. Now this is gonna feel a bit strange, but trust me, you’re totally safe.”
I tighten my grip on the arms of my seat. Dad presses a red button and . . . BANG! BOOM! KA-BLAMMO!
