A novel by

 
 
Get ready for killer cupcakes! Deadly donuts! And an outer space adventure with illustrations on almost every page.

Astra's family is moving - to a whole new planet. And what does any kid need on moving day? Snacks! But when Astra asks her spaceship's computer to whip up the ultimate dessert, it makes cakes so amazing that they come to life. Now these cake-monsters are destroying the ship! Can Astra and her robot friend stop them in time? Or are these terrible treats a recipe for disaster?

For early chapter book readers who are ready for something longer, the Not-So-Impossible Tales are packed with silly humor, action, and larger-than-life fun.

"An out-of-this-world choice to read alone or read aloud." - School Library Journal

"Will appeal to reluctant and strong chapter-book readers alike." - Booklist

"Goofy fun from the first page, and Astra, a perfect mix of ingenious, precocious, and excitable, will grab readers right away." - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
