First Graders from Mars, Episode 4: Tera, Star Student
Illustrated by Mark Teague
Tera is a star student. When Pod 1 is assigned a group project to build the solar system, Tera is sure she has all the answers. But her know-it-all nature ruffles a few tentacles and leaves her wondering: How can being so right sometimes feel so wrong? With humor and heart, Tera, Star Student reveals there is more to being smart than knowing all the answers. Another out of this world episode of the always humorous martian chronicles.
What people are saying:
“The ‘kids’ from Pod 1 are back. This time, purple-haired Tera is the star, or tries to be, when she puts herself in charge of a group project and alienates her fellow students with her bossy, know-it-all behavior. All ends well, though, in a satisfying and simple conclusion. Corey’s humor rests on a strong foundation of universal emotion. Teague’s bright pictures are perfect, adding all sorts of wonderfully zany touches. All in all, this early reader is out of this world.” —School Library Journal
