I was prepared to like this book quite a bit, and my son was as well. He is interested in the solar system so the cover appealed to him. Oliver is a young boy with overprotective parents who do everything for him, including his homework. When he is assigned a project to build a space diorama (yuck) he ends up working with a classmate for the first time and wonderful things end up happening.
The story was cute enough, the ending likeable, but I just felt like something was missing. My boys sat through it patiently enough, but didn't seem to care to much when the book reached its conclusion.
