Space Cop Zack, Protector of the Galaxy: A Kids' Book about Using Your Imagination is written by Don Winn and illustrated by Allred. Space Cop Zack and his robot sidekick Garg skyrocket through the stars, chasing the terrible Dr. Dogbreath. On this chase, they travel through bad smells, squishy slime, giant ocean monsters, and motion sickness, and yuck, what a chase. And just who is this Dr. Dogbreath that they are trying to capture? Use your imagination as you follow Zack and Garg and their interesting and exciting journey through a lot of garbage to capture the bad Dr. Dogbreath.

This is a book just for boys, and they will love it! The author does a fantastic job of capturing a little boy’s imagination in an interesting and exciting way that will have kids picking this book up over and over to read. The discussion questions at the end of the book are really helpful because it gives parents the opportunity to talk about their child’s imagination with them. And kids can learn new and fun ways to create an imagination from everything around them. The illustrations are just what it takes to capture the attention of children. The vivid colors and unique characters and creatures will capture your young child’s attention. If you are looking for a funny, fun, and entertaining book for your child’s library, this would be an awesome choice for you. I encourage you to pick up a copy and see for yourself what a great book this is.
