    Sanity and Tallulah are best friends living on a satelite in space. Without permisson they create a life form that gets loose aboard the ship. It ends up causing chaos and the two best friends must find it before it's too late! I loved the illustrations in this book and how well they went with the story. This book was a wonderful, fun read and I highly recommend it!

    So delightful! Two best friends on a space station try to prevent the entire thing from falling apart, which may or may not be their own fault. There are hints at a larger, unexplored universe of space station-type activities going on, which I really enjoyed. What is all this science for? What are they protecting themselves against?

The story reminded me very strongly of the Disney Channel Original Movie: Zenon, Girl of the 21st Century. The art here is spectacular as well! I felt it captured the variety of emotions very well, from the funny moments to the frightening ones. This is the first book I've read specifically to prepare for the store, and I couldn't have gotten off to a better start! Excited to start sharing it. (edit: I also couldn't have had more typos and grammatical mistakes. WOW.)

    This is a fun book. Sanity, who is advanced in her understanding of science, and Tallulah, her best friend, who is not quite as in to science, have created a three headed cat, despite the fact that no animals other than humans are allowed on the space station that they live on. Here is the three headed cat, below. The world building is well done. The adults are not stupid to Sanity’s smarts. Everyone has a personality, and background, and although we don’t know all of it yet. It appears as though This is a fun book.

This will be an excellent series, with miscivious but normal pre-teens, and exasperated parents, and bureaucracy and all the fun things that go into a good science fiction story. Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review.

Nevertheless, I know come October I will be pushing this book into the hands of several parents and young kids who will absolutely love it. Conclusion: Keep

    This books captivates kiddos because it has such an incredible creative plot! Life on a space station and conducting your own scientific experiments as a kid? How could my son not love this?! Thanks to Disney for sending us an ARC for review. It's tricky to find books that grab his attention, so this was a win!

    Science fiction graphic novel that has fun with science, creates some interesting characters, both kids and adults and tells an interesting and story. Excellent visual story telling that works well with the text. A real charmer.

    Pretty cute, but one half of a duo always getting into trouble with the other always having to pull back is one of my less preferred tropes.

    Sanity is not your typical kid; she is a science prodigy and has bio-engineered a very illegal, very cute creature: a three-headed cat named Princess Sparkle, Destroyer of Worlds (or more specifically, Princess, Sparkle, and Destroyer of Worlds -- the full name usage is a funny joke that readers will smile at). Of course, Sanity's best friend, Tallulah, is mixed up in it, helping Sanity keep the cat hidden from her own mother, Dr. Vega, senior scientist on board the space station Wilnick. Of cour Sanity is not your typical kid; she is a science prodigy and has bio-engineered a very illegal, very cute creature: a three-headed cat named Princess Sparkle, Destroyer of Worlds (or more specifically, Princess, Sparkle, and Destroyer of Worlds -- the full name usage is a funny joke that readers will smile at). Of course, Sanity's best friend, Tallulah, is mixed up in it, helping Sanity keep the cat hidden from her own mother, Dr. Vega, senior scientist on board the space station Wilnick. Of course Princess Sparkle, Destroyer of Worlds is discovered and quarantined, but you can't have a sci-fi adventure without something going wrong, so soon enough the girls discover PSDW has gotten loose. Right after, things start to be nibbled on around the space station wreaking havoc. Right away, PSDW is pointed to as the culprit. Sanity and Tallulah must race against the adults on the station to find PSDW to both keep her safe, and save their home. But not everything is as it seems. Sanity & Tallulah has it all: friendship, hijinks, science, humor, a diverse cast, and love. Love for family, love for their home, and love for each other. Love pours out from this book; both from the author's writing and from the characters themselves. Mix that together with a science experiment on the loose, and a high-stakes search to save their home, you too will fall in love with Sanity Jones and Tallulah Vega-Davisson. The writing was full of humor and felt very real, even with the setting being a space station. Sanity and Tallulah are great leading ladies, who have a total synchronicity that only BFFs can get. All the adults on board are also great! Dr. Vega, Tallulah's mom, is a whip-smart, no-nonsense lady who clearly loves both girls. The girls' fathers are both featured prominently as well, Sanity's being the head of the space station and Tallulah's being a supply runner. All of the characters are well developed and the illustrations are used to hint that there's more to all of them then we have been told. This will make the readers want more stories set in this world. But what really makes this book feel grounded, even in the midst of the sci-fi shenanigans, is that the author showcases diversity in her characters. Sanity is black, Tallulah is biracial (Latinx/white), Dr. Vega is a Latinx woman in charge of the whole science department, Sanity's father is a black man in charge of the whole space station, and her mom is part of the military in this world. There is another department head who is Asian. There are both gay and straight couples. And Tallulah's dad has a prosthetic leg. All of this diversity is refreshing and makes the story come alive even more. This is one of the best graphic novels I've read in a while. I couldn't put it down, and was so sad when it was over. Molly Brooks hit it out of the park with her debut novel, and I can't wait to see what else she has in her. Hopefully, it is more of Sanity & Tallulah!

    I struggled whether to rate this three or four stars - I liked the art, the premise, and the plot (I've always wanted to live on a space station!), but it definitely wasn't perfect. I initially settled on four stars because I know the kids in my library will love it, and that's what matters, but while writing the review I talked myself down to three.

(view spoiler)[Dr. Vega, at first, seems appropriately mad at Sanity for breaking literally all the rules to create her three-headed kitten, but then this is forgotten. I understand that this is a middle-grade graphic novel and not everything is going to be realistic, but I really dislike plots where children do something dangerous and/or stupid and everything is forgiven because they're the main characters and/or sooo much smarter than everyone else. Yes, Tallulah was grounded and didn't get to go on the trip with her dad, but (and maybe understandably, since Dr. Vega became incredibly busy) after that it's not enforced at all. Sanity even has the gall to whine to her dad that she wants to keep the kitten after it escapes and it causes trouble and he placates her rather than letting her know her behavior is unacceptable! This is not necessarily a message to send to anybody. The trip that Tallulah's dad and brother go on is completely unnecessary to the plot. I guess if Molly Brooks ever makes a sequel (which is likely), she has some background to build on, but what did this trip add to the story? Was it really important that her brother and father were out of the picture and bonded together? And while Princess Sparkle, Destroyer of Worlds, was not the one causing the damage and it would have been too cruel to kill her, it's incredible that the crew who brought the duct weasels faced, again, no consequences! They endangered the whole station and thousands of lives, and got away with a free pass and a giant three-headed kitten. (hide spoiler)]

The space station on which she and her friend Tallulah live is imperiled by duct rats who are chewing through piping and drinking coolant, causing massive leaks and failures. Even though the girls have been told not to do any more projects, they don't really listen, and continue to try to find and keep their pet, Princess Sparkle Destroyer of Worlds. Unfortunately, there entire community is threatened, but they are allowed to fix the problems and save the day. Strengths: This is on trend for many reasons-- STEM content, girl power, and multicultural cast. Graphic novels are always popular. Weaknesses: I was deeply bothered that the girls ignored scientific safety to the detriment of their community, but their parents let them keep making bad decisions. Students will not be. What I really think: Definitely waiting for a prebind. This was a rather difficult read, with lots of small, scientific text. My struggling readers are the only ones who pick up graphic novels, and they might find this difficult. My readers who might be interested in science and could understand this tend not to pick up graphic novels. This is just the case in my school; I'm sure this book will win lots of awards and be a popular choice in many libraries.

    Life aboard a space station is never boring, especially when you have to cobble things together to keep things running. Sanity Jones, and her best friend, Tallulah Vega-Davisson, certainly know how to keep things interesting aboard Wilnick Station: their latest experiment is Sanity's project; a three-headed kitten named Princess Sparkle Destroyer of Worlds (one name for each head, naturally!). Princess Sparkle is discovered, but the kitten escapes into the duct system. As the girls go on the sea Life aboard a space station is never boring, especially when you have to cobble things together to keep things running. Sanity Jones, and her best friend, Tallulah Vega-Davisson, certainly know how to keep things interesting aboard Wilnick Station: their latest experiment is Sanity's project; a three-headed kitten named Princess Sparkle Destroyer of Worlds (one name for each head, naturally!). Princess Sparkle is discovered, but the kitten escapes into the duct system. As the girls go on the search for their pet, before she can get hurt or caught, Dr. Vega, the station's senior scientist and Tallulah's mom, has bigger problems on her hands: Wilnick Station is experiencing some big-time glitches that could put the station at risk. While some of the crew point their fingers at Princess Sparkle Destroyer of Worlds, Sanity and Tallulah find evidence of something else in those ducts. They've got to solve the mystery and save their kitten, and they may just have to rescue the whole space station! This is such a positive, fun read. The cast is diverse, with our two heroines coming from African-American and biracial (Latinx-white) families of prominence: Sanity's dad is Wilnick's station director, Tallulah is the daughter of the senior scientist. Her white dad rocks a man bun, prosthetic leg, and context clues allude to his being a celebrity heartthrob at some point in the past. There's humor and technospeak that kids will love. The three-color white, purple, and pink artwork has bold lines and gives a real feel for the sheer size and scope of a space station. Molly Brooks gives readers a vision of a diverse future where strong female characters are valued. A must-add to graphic novel collections - put this with your Zita the Spacegirl and Star Scouts books! Sanity & Tallulah has starred reviews from Kirkus and Publisher's Weekly.

It was a delightful art style filled with a wide spectrum of space station residents with varying degrees of ability and disability, gender and ethnicity, presented in a way that speaks to the ideal normalcy many science fiction futures present with all of us living in harmony because in the future those kind of labels don't get in the way of human interaction anymore, like they do here in the 21st century. While this is a graphic novel intended for kids it was fun to read as an adult, too. It'll be fun to see what kind of adventures the author/illustrator, Brooks, dreams up for her two heroines in future installments.

As you read on, the whole story is like that actually, with science, relationships, and histories coming into play without any handholding or introductions.

An entire world is established over the course of this story, and eventually you’re just understanding it without questioning the why— that’s simply just How Stuff Works in this particular universe. How the hell do you engineer synthetic protein? What the hell are cinnamon plums? It’s sort of cool that it doesn’t matter, because it makes you focus more on the badass characters and their mission. B+, lots of science and casually uplifting moments as this little black girl whips up all sorts of technical things and performs spectacular feats of engineering without a pause. In fact I could even do without Tallulah since she seemed a little like a one-note sidekick? But i appreciate how real their best-friendship was so I suppose she can stay. I’ll recommend it when it comes out!

For those readers less interested in the science aspect, there are plenty of things to latch unto in this story. Thing one is a three-headed kitten! Initially what caught my attention. LOL Also, this story takes place on a space station that's deep in space and nowhere near Earth. It reminded me a lot of the Disney Channel Original movie, Zenon Girl of the 21st Century. Down to the white and colored female leads, although here the WOC takes center stage, which I enjoyed greatly. I'm looking forward to reading more about their misadventures in future books and will be recommending it highly to anyone interested in graphic novels, animals, space, or a good romp.

Every character is unique and memorable, and the adventure is not one I'll soon forget. I mean, who could forget a three-headed kitten named Princess Sparkles, Destroyer of Worlds? This is a must-have for any and every bookstore. I'll personally make sure my bookstore carries this book for everyone to enjoy.

    Read this as part of my November I-work-in-a-book-store-in-the-kids-department-and-Christmas-is-coming prep and was great! Nice to finally see a kids graphic novel with a black main character. For something so short it managed to really hook me and make me feel attached to the world and characters. I liked the plot a lot with the 3-headed kitten and all! Would love to see this become a series and I'll definitely make it one of my main kids graphic novels recommendations

    Best friends, a space-station, a three-headed kitten, girls doing science, what's not to like? I also appreciate the fact that the parents and other adults are sympathetic characters, doing their best, rather than just there to thwart kids' fun. A good all-ages comic. Can't wait to see the final version and have it in the library. And I'm looking forward to more of these adventures. Oh and did I mention: three-headed kitten and girls doing science in space?

    This is a fun, cute one-off about rambunctious teens in space exploring a defunct spaceship. Lots of action matched with lots of rational thinking and problem solving. The art is fairly monochromatic but still effective. Considering how short this is (32 pages), it is very plot-heavy. It is very enjoyable, and I find myself interested in trying to find more of Molly's works.

    An aodrable adventure of two young science students on a space station who lose the kitten-like creature they created: Princess Sparkle, Destroyer Of Worlds. They're already grounded just for creating it, so now they have to find it before they get into even more trouble. If this doesn't already sound like a book you want to read, then we can't ever hang out.

    Will be buying two copies of this for my library. The $22 hardcover(228pgs) I borrowed from the public library seems like it will hold up fairy well. Who says graphic novels aren't really reading!? I think this one will surely please my science fiction/girl power fans (and teachers too) in grades 4-5. So glad to see there is a sequel in the works.
