Zita the Spacegirl




I love sharing books. Obviously. However, certain books create a blazing fire inside my mouth. Words bounce out at record speed. Some students wonder if they will witness spontaneous human combustion. Should they fetch the nurse? Eventually, they realize it is just Mr. Schu ranting about the next BEST BOOK. How does it affect circulation, you ask? The book will have a waiting list--guaranteed. Thank you, Ben Hatke, for getting me fired up about Zita the Spacegirl.

Here's what seven third graders shared about Zita's book trailer:

  1. Just found out about Zita and love it. Have you read Flight Explorer? Zita is one of the stories in it (along with Copper, Missile Mouse, Jellaby and others).

  2. Quite a few kids have said, "Hey, she's in Flight." I've only read volume one; I need to read the others.
