Gr 3-6-Brimming with sci-fi action and futuristic gadgetry, Missile Mouse comes across as a James Bond meets Han Solo for the middle-grade crowd. The cocky, big-eared rodent is a secret agent for the Galactic Security Agency (GSA) who prefers to do things the "quick and messy" way. This penchant for disruption has the GSA keeping close tabs on him. When brilliant scientist Ulrich Vondorf is kidnapped by the evil Rogue Imperium of Planets (RIP), Missile Mouse is tasked with retrieving him. Adding importance to the mission is the fact that Vondorf has knowledge of the black hole-creating Star Crusher, which RIP could use to bring the universe to its knees. While the plot, featuring rescue missions and against-the-clock thrills, doesn't break new ground, it is satisfyingly efficient. Rarely is a panel wasted. The modern, richly colored illustrations will keep readers visually interested throughout. Entertaining, well-executed, and likely to circulate feverishly as soon as it hits the shelf, this first installment in a graphic novel series should have scores of devoted fans in no time.-Travis Jonker, Dorr Elementary School, MI Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
