Staff Reviews

Sanity is good at science, Tallulah is good at getting into trouble, and together they’re my favorite duo of the year. When Sanity’s adorable science experiment, Princess Sparkle Destroyer of Worlds, escapes, and strange things start happening on their space station home, is PSDoW to blame? Or is there a larger mystery to solve? Smart, diverse, legitimately funny, full of action and heart—there are more adventures to come and I can’t wait!! 

— Bethany Strout, Tattered Cover Director of Buying and Childrens Buyer

Sanity and Tallulah live on a space station and want a pet. But, they weren't allowed to make a pet in the lab. They do it anyway and hide the pet from people. Until someone finds the pet.... with three heads! It is a great book!

— Nathan, 3rd grader at Lawrence Elementary in Arvada, CO

Sanity & Tallulah live in wilnick station on the edge of the galaxy. Sanity creates a three headed cat  that escapes and the station is going to lose orbit. I loved the book because there are animals, action and a lot of emotion -- and they're in space.

— Dietrich, Lawrence Elementary in Arvada, CO


Sanity Jones and Tallulah Vega are best friends on Wilnick, the dilapidated space station they call home at the end of the galaxy. So naturally, when gifted scientist Sanity uses her lab skills and energy allowance to create a definitely-illegal-but-impossibly-cute three-headed kitten, she has to show Tallulah. But Princess, Sparkle, Destroyer of Worlds is a bit of a handful, and it isn't long before the kitten escapes to wreak havoc on the space station. The girls will have to turn Wilnick upside down to find her, but not before causing the whole place to evacuate! Can they save their home before it's too late?

Readers will be over the moon for this rollicking space adventure by debut author Molly Brooks.
