The Jupiter Chronicles

The Jupiter Chronicles by Leonardo Ramirez

Callie and Ian are the main characters in the book and come from a single parent family.  One day out of the blue their father disappeared.  Before he disappeared he left Ian a telescope, Ian stored it in the attic and never touched it.  In fact, he refused to use it.  So one night when the children were supposed to be sleeping, Callie gets up and heads upstairs to the attic.  It wasn’t long until her brother Ian came up the stairs to investigate.  When Callie decided to peer into the telescope all of a sudden something strange happened.  The telescoped seemed to come alive and pull Callie and Ian towards a  steam-powered floating cities.

Once they arrive on the floating cities, they are greeted by Stinky Frank.  Stinky Frank’s real name is Francis Flatulus Ferdinand, which of course wasn’t easy to pronounce.  Stinky Frank was the nickname that Callie and Ian came up with because the space robot was stinky.  Stinky Frank help Callie and Ian navigate their way to fight off the Martians and rescue their father.  Their father was captured and taken to this foreign land.

After Callie and Ian, defeat the Marctians and free the Jovians.  They finally get a chance to meet up with their father.  It has been 5 years since they have last seen him.  When it time for Callie and Ian to return home, their father comes with them and surprises his wife, Camilla, who has had a very difficult time understanding what happened to him.  She was excited that they were back home and were safe; however, she was surprised to see her long lost husband Peter.  After hugging Peter, he said his final goodbyes and returned back to the floating land leaving Camilla to raise Callie and Ian on her own.

I hope that you enjoy this synopsis of “The Jupiter Chronicles” and that it is a book that looks interesting for your child.

    I think I’m lucky that I was able to get my daughter interested in reading at an early age. That book may be something she’d be interested in, since she comes from a single parent family.

    Great review Christy. I used to love reading as a kid and sure hope my son would too some day. This sounds like it could be great for him and if he DOES like reading, then I’m sure it would be one he’d like.
