Lill and Mewe Journey to the Ocean of Runa, by Jean E. Lane, is the second book in the Lill and Mewe series. This book picks up where the last one left off. Lill and Mewe have returned from their visit to planet Earth where they met Lilly. Upon returning to Mars, Lill is in trouble for taking the space ship without permission. However, the adults also recognize the value of the experience and form a Mars Mission Space Center Cadet Program. Both Lill and her brother Merak are accepted into the program. Merak’s first mission takes him on an adventure to Neptune and its moon Triton, where he sees something rather scary looking. Lill’s mission takes her to the Ocean of Runa on her own except for Mewe, the web-footed water cat who followed Lill to look after her. The two encounter a Wicky fish while swimming in the ocean.

Jean E. Lane fills her book with delightful descriptions that are bound to kick-start a child’s imagination, taking them on a fascinating journey to Neptune and its moon Triton. Children will also be tempted by the call to study science, producing thoughts of space travel. My favorite character in this book was Mewe. The thought of a web-footed cat made me laugh. This book will interest children but while being entertained they will learn about the universe, light years, planets, moons, and space travel.
