Starwatchers is a fiction/fantasy adventure for ages 9 to 99 as well as middle grade students, ages 9-12. It has been called a "smart book" for young readers. Includes journey map, glossary and trivia test. Full color laminated covers-from original pastel painting by Helen Gregory.
This story follows the sudden and often scary plight of young Mitch and Meg, who are sucked out of Wyoming and onto an asteroid one night as they walk home from a movie theater. They encounter a brisk but helpful little alien, subterranean habitomes, strange food, and a starcasting facility before happening upon the wicked Dustman. That's when Mitch disappears and Meg becomes determined to find both him and their way back to Earth. Her travels are frought with unusual challenges that test her courage but build her character.
