Publisher's Summary

Is it space travel that children dream of, or merely visiting other worlds? Todd had always set his heart on being an astronaut, but when he meets an alien and travels to another world, he doesn't use a spaceship; he just hangs out in his own back yard.In Space Boy, Orson Scott Card, author of Ender's Game, takes listeners into a strange and wonderful future, where people from another world regularly visit Earth, usually without being noticed. And when humans travel to their world, they find themselves dangerously weak and powerless, until Todd finds a way to set both worlds to rights.
By turns funny and painful, Space Boy is Card at his best, exploring human nature for the entertainment of readers young and old.

Short and Strange

This is a wierd and silly story that plays on universal relativity theories in a fairy tale sort of way. I wasn't impressed by the story either way. Nothing was developed in either the characters or the story line to endear the reader to them one way or another... Like the shortest science fiction story (Frederic Brown's "Knock"). There's little for anyone to be impressed or unimpressed.

Space Boy

A very nice short family Sci Fi story. Narration was excellent. I will be buying more of Orson Scott Card's books.
