It’s the year 2842, and teenager, Charlie Paige’s, sister is stung by a mysterious, alien bug which renders her in a coma. Charlie learns that his sister will die in 72 hours if she is not given the “anti-venom.” He must then travel to a far away galaxy, with a crew of quirky characters, to go on an intergalactic scavenger hunt which includes legends, relics, clues, and all sorts of unique beings and planets, all in hopes of saving his sister. It is a race against time; it is a story of great sacrifice; it is a space adventure that takes you to some of the most beautiful and dreadful places imaginable. This book is kind of like Star Wars meets The DaVinci Code… for kids... and adults who are young at heart.

It’s still the year 2842, and teenagers, Charlie and Lizzie Paige, are on a distant planet when they get the news of their parents’ vanishing. Join the crew of the Lady Alabama as they go on a search and rescue mission in this interactive science-fiction adventure novel. In this sequel, you can help the crew to unravel the mysteries, solve the puzzles, and uncover the clues surrounding their parents’ abrupt disappearance. Visiting new and exciting planets, learning of an ancient secret society, and navigating multiple booby traps are just a fraction of what awaits you on this next space adventure with the Paiges. It’s like Guardians of the Galaxy meets Indiana Jones… for kids… and those who are young at heart.

Great Book!

Exciting Read-Superb Characters

My class loved this book!

Thought the book was awesome ! The plot is engaging, the characters are likeable. It's a refreshing and enjoyable way to get your mind off the overly serious monotonous world and bring back a bit of wonder and imagination with your kids. If you're a parent considering getting this book for your child, please do... But get a copy for yourself as well, and enjoy revisiting your own childhood.

Best book ever

It was an awesome book with breathtaking moments! There should be a sequel for someone else's brother/sister! I give it 5 stars! The part I like is that it talks about things you might have done in real life. For example, someone's eating Cheetos at one of the parts. (But seriously, make a sequel). I am 9 and I also really like series like Harry Potter and Diary of a wimpy kid.

I read this book to my second grade class because several of them are friends with the author, Dr. Pope's son. Also, Dr. Pope is my fantastic dentist as well as several of my students. The kids absolutely loved this book.
They begged me to read more than one chapter a day. They really loved the characters, especially Charlie, Professor Hootie, and Dr. Fox. They made drawings of the characters as they read it and then later created the characters out of clay. Kids who love science fiction will absolutely love this exciting book about space travel and a boy's quest to save his sister!

Can't wait to read the next one!!

Our family just finished this book tonight. When it was over I asked my son (9) what he thought and he answered 'I loved it'. He also said he couldn't wait to read more books by this author! 

I feel like I became friends with the entire crew of the starship! I was right there with them going from planet to planet, fighting all the enemies, escaping the danger, solving the clues, and racing against time to find the mysterious anti-venom! Exciting read and superb characters! When's the movie!?!

My 10 year old grandson and I have really enjoyed the Muzz book series. As a matter of fact, I gave him a copy of the third book for his 10th birthday and he raced through it in just a few days. We look forward to the next installment!  

Five Stars

This Muzz book has exceeded expectations and the story line is incredible, and it was very visual.

Dr. Jonathan E. Pope is a husband, father, and dentist in Hampton Cove, AL, a suburb of Huntsville. He is a member of Southwood Presbyterian Church. He grew up in the small town of Butler, AL and graduated from Patrician Academy. He then moved to Birmingham where he attended and graduated from Samford University and the University of Alabama School of Dentistry.

A year and a half before the publication of Muzz, Jonathan started a brain storming project with his then 7 year old son, Charlie, after starting two chapter books that didn't engage either of them. That project eventually turned into this book.

Muzz officially went on sale on February 8, 2016.
