My nephew and I enjoyed Space Boy quite a bit. I think the book is just a nice story apt to strike at the heart of a little boy's imagination. My nephew just grinned as we read this book, and seemed quite pleased with it.
In an odd way this book reminded me of The Snowy Day
by Ezra Jack Keats
. Oh, it's nothing like The Snowy Day story-wise, but it is in terms of its touching appreciation of the simple things in life. Quite an enjoyable little read, and a great bedtime story for a little child.
