Noah Zarc: Mammoth Trouble by D. Robert Pease
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Noah Zarc is about a 12 year old paraplegic boy who travels throughout space and time on a mission to repopulate Earth with animals from all suitable time periods. With his family – Mom, Dad, brother Hamilton and sister Sam – Noah pilots the ARC (Animal Rescue Cruiser) while trying to stop Haon from preventing the re-population of all the animals on Earth.
I must admit to judging a book by it’s cover but being totally wrong. What I thought was going to be a tad bit cheesy story about a young boy traipsing the universe was actually a wonderful story about a boy who doesn’t let his handicaps hold him back (except to get out of chores, that is!) I was skeptical about how quickly the cavegirl Adina learned not only English but also math and science concepts, but still felt she was a good addition to the Zarc family.
Full of action and adventure, Noah Zarc is an excellent choice for any young reader who just might learn a thing or two about what you can do if you try.
