My two sons were immediately attracted to the character of Hal, who grows up in an exciting but also limiting environment of a space station. We followed his adventures through the first two books, and loved Hal's brave, mature side as well as his schoolboy prankster side, his eccentric but caring parents (Oh yes! He actually has two of his own parents - I am rather tired of children's books with either one or both parents dead or not the real parents...), and his best friend, Stinky.
In this book we finally get to visit the planet Gyris (it was mentioned in both the previous books) and land in an action-packed adventure as things do not all go as planned for the summer camp.
I highly recommend this series to all parents who want to get little boys to read or who need a good bedtime story to read aloud. Clean fun and interesting details that kids can relate to.
