I am happy to be acquainted with local Nashville author, Leonardo Ramirez. He introduced me to a whole new realm of science fiction books- steampunk. His steampunk book series for kids is full of imagination and humor. When he released his first book in the series, The Jupiter Chronicles: The Secret of the Great Red Spot, my children and I read it together. My kids loved it and my daughter innocently asked, “Why did it have to end?” You can be sure that when the second book in the new science fiction book series, The Ice Orphan of Ganymede, came out we read it together too. Now it gives me great pleasure to announce that the third book is about to be released. My blog has been given the honor of a doing a cover reveal. I even get to share some fabulous steampunk coloring pages with y’all!
Science Fiction Books Kids Will Love- The Jupiter Chronicles Series
In The Secret of the Great Red Spot we are introduced to two brave siblings setting out on an epic journey into the unknown. The sibling dynamic adds a sense of humor and underlines the importance of the family bonds through thick and thin. The steam-powered floating cities of Jupiter can’t help draw you into the fantasy world.
Then in book 2, The Ice Orphan of Ganymede, the siblings delve deeper into finding out who they truly are while facing a myriad of interplanetary challenges.
After reading book 2, my daughter asked, “Why did it have to end?“
