This eBook of eighty illustrations in full color is basically a cordial invitation to read the eBook-series of “Yah and the Space Cadets.”
The eBook gives a brief description of many of the places visited by the cadets and their companions during their trip from Zorec (their home planet and city) to AquaSoil, the discovered planet where they are planning to establish a new civilization.
During their trips, they stop and visit many different planets where, in most cases, they receive a power or a gift that increases their ability to confront enemies of the Empire. In fact, at one point they acquire so many powers that they begin to wonder. They are also confronted by their most common enemies, the Tamorts and the Herptiles, but thus far they have been successful in these quarrels.
The eBook contains eighty illustrations in full color. Many are of planets they visited or passed by; others are of places they visited, including moons, caves, lakes and seas. Finally there are a few that depict unique items they encountered along the way.
At the end, there is a comprehensive glossary explaining who the main characters are in these adventures as well as detailing some of their features.
We are sure you and your children (8 and up) will enjoy looking at the images and trust that you will become a reader of this magnificent saga.
