did not like it

Generally I like these books a lot and so do my kids.
I do have to point out that the author was incorrect in her description of how gravity works on the moon. The children only feel low gravity while outside the moon base...this is wrong. It's worse that there is an explanation given as to why they feel normal while in the moon base (it is said that the air pressure gives them their normal weight. Not so. They would feel the same 1/6th gravity whether inside (with air) or outside (without air). If a research guide is created for this book, I hope the error is clearly pointed out.
Osborne is strong on history but should consult on matters of physics.
