Author Karen Tyrrell has again produced another book for children that teach lessons while highly engaging them from start to finish. In this work Jo-Kin Battles the IT preteens will immerse themselves in this action, stimulating their creativity and imaginations. Discover how 11-year-old Josh Atkins "Jo-Kin", referred to as Super Geek at school, was able to live his dream in competing and be nominated for the job of a Super Space kid among 11 participants.

As a former educator I can see so many life themes woven throughout this book that make it a perfect practical time where life values can be instilled. Preteens will learn the value of pursuing goals and putting forth great effort to achieve them. Samuel Jones, another participant chosen, though too judged by his exteriors, will prove to also have skill and intelligence – important ingredients for success. As Josh and Sam master their training they learn how to work as team players which will prove necessary as their mission would be to protect planet earth from alien forces.

Children, especially males will enjoy the battles Jo-Kin and Sam become engaged in. "The droid crab slipped on banana goo and smashed into the wall. Exploding into a cool flash of green and gold light. Yay!" As they defeat the I-bots and CritBots they would also in counter and ate leg octopus, flying lizards, and one eyed monster – all before the climax battle of defeating the "IT" that captured captain Astra on planet OhMaa.

While children discover if Jo-Kin and Sam can complete this mission successfully they will have lost themselves in this world, enjoying the action-packed science-fiction taking them from one mission to the next. Award-winning author and teacher, Karen Tyrrell makes her home in Brisbane Australia.

Jo-Kin (aka Josh Atkins) is a funny but flawed, easy to like hero-in-the-making. As a lonely star-gazing super-geek, he's the boy least likely to save the universe. All he needs is a teammate and an opportunity. Full of action, adventure, and slobbering space monsters, Jo-Kin Battles the It is an intergalactic odyssey to be loved by any little earthling.

Josh has enjoyed a stellar solo career as a gamer, but now, with the earth's survival at stake and his friends in danger, he has to put his gaming prowess to the test and learn to be a team player. Author Karen Tyrrell does a great job of weaving the cooperation lesson in without being preachy or heavy-handed.

Action-packed and full of adventure, this book is sure to entice reluctant readers--particularly boys who'd rather be gaming. There's plenty for girl readers to like in this book too. The illustrations have a zany comic book vibe that is sure to appeal to kids.

I was lucky enough to meet Karen Tyrrell at Penrith's Dymocks. I had the privilege of purchasing some of Karen’s Children’s books. Each night I have been reading a chapter from Super Space Kids, Jo-Kin battles the IT, to my Granddaughters. Quotation: Mia ”Please Nanny just one more chapter.” Me, “No you have to wait.” Mia “I want to see what happened to Astra!” Me, ‘'Tomorrow night we’ll find out. Mia, “OOOHH!” They just love the way every chapter has an adventure, and I like the way Karen has incorporated morals about everyday life into the story. It’s a wonderful creative story for boy, girls, Grandmas and everyone. Congratulation Karen on such a wonderful story we just love it!

I had recently bought my nephew, Dylan, Karen Tyrell's latest book.... Jo-Kin ~ Battles the IT.... Dylan is always in front of his video player. Dylan was so impressed with the graphics he took to the book right away, not to mention it had to do with outer space. He started the book right away, and read it till he completed it... He just loved it and then gave it to one of his friends to borrow... It's great to see young children be so interested in a book, they actually put the paddles of the video game down, and start to enjoy reading.... Thank you Karen, for another great children' s book...
