Skip School, Fly to Spacecontinues the ongoing repartee of this crazy cast of characters. The irascible Rat is housemates with the affable but innocent Pig, who bears the brunt of Rat's cynical tirades but never turns to the dark side himself. Friends Goat, the wise one, and Zebra, the one who is constantly being targeted by the ever-annoying but ever-hapless Crocs, are joined by a changing troupe, including Guard Duck and Snuffles, the angry cat.
With cartoons selected especially for young readers, Skip School, Fly to Spaceis sure to entertain.
