Fans of the series will not be disappointed. The Spaceheadz, along with Michel K., Venus, & TJ are looking forward to celebrating 3.14 million plus 1 Spaceheadz and saving the planet when disaster strikes in the form of a sneak thief. Michael K. is furious, the Spaceheadz are baffled, and even Agent Umber is on the case. Agent Umber continues to be the well-meaning and patriotic bumbler who always manages to stumble into saving the day (think Inspector Clouseau from the Pink Panther films), ...more

Written by Jon Scieszka (2011). Ill. by Shane Prigmore. New York: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers. Art work is done digitally, black & white. This is not my typical reading material. But I thought since it is something boys like to read I should see what it is all about. I did enjoy it and can see why there is such a following of Scieszka. As this is the thrid book of the series it was a little hard for me to get into, but I stuck with it, enjoying it as I went. I liked the idea ...more

Well, the third Spaceheadz book isn't as fabulous as the second one, but it isn't bad. Seems like things are taking a turn for the worst for our favorite SPHDZ in this volume. Can Michael K. handle the pressure?

There was a lot of characters we got to see more of in this book - we got to learn much more about Mom K. and Dad K. as well as Agent Umber. We were introduced to Agent Hot Magenta and it seems as if everyone will need to band together to win the battle of the aliens.

I wonder how many mor

I'm not sure I liked book 3 as much as the first two, but I'm looking forward to finding out, with my son, what happens to the SPHDZ now that the plot has officially thickened. I appreciate Sciezka's subtle humor in the side pages that speak to themes happening in the story. More crazy silliness, which is what we've come to expect from this series!
My son enjoys reading this series to me as much as I enjoy the action and twists Jon Scieszka puts in each volume. This one ends in a cliff-hanger so we will have to wait for the next volume to find out what happens. Be sure to start with Book One!

it's my fault to jump read to #3 so i didn't get what spaceheadz means....hahaha

if they have introduction page(s), i'm sure it will be helpful...a lot.
John Scieszka knows kids! The third book in the series delivers more wacky scenarios to keep them reading. Grades 2-5.
