    One thought on “Dmitri The Astronaut”

    1. The only reason I didn't like this is because (in the gentle way that children's books have) it's largely about public failure and humiliation. So, kind of uncomfortable. Then the resolution is that the failure turns out to have been a triumph after all, which isn't how things go in real life.The book isn't bad and the illustrations are quietly wonderful, as in all Agee's books.

    2. Stupid story, imo. But, it's Agee, so, I liked the pix enough to give it an 'ok' star, and, maybe I'm missing something. But it's not SF, there's no moral I can find to call it a fable, it's not absurd, a farce, or a satire, and it's only sort of a friendship story. So, what is it?

    3. Odd little story. Doesn't seem to have a real point-not that it matters. I typically like Agee's stuff more than this, though. I was hoping that there would be some kind of catch, like more time passed while he was up there than he thought. No such luck, though

    4. The illustrations in this book are cute and simple. I enjoyed viewing them. The book has dialogue and exclamation points for oral reading lessons. Lines per page range from a few to many. This book would be good for a 3rd grader. Some pages with only a few lines might lead a potential buyer/reader to thing it is best for a younger reader but there are those pages with more text. There are many quotes from different characters that would make this a good read if you used different voices for the [...]

    5. Poor Dmitri, an astronaut forgotten after a 2 1/2 year mission on the moon to collect rocks. Upon his return to earth, he realizes that no one is waiting for him any longer. The science museum still has a display about his endeavor, but it's neglected and forgotten, much the same as Dmitri. He wanders the city feeling lost, eventually dropping his moon rocks in a garbage can in the park only to have a friend, secretly hiding in his moon rock bag emerge and turn things around for him. While this [...]

    6. The story is mediocre - an astronaut comes home after being away for awhile and no one seems to remember him. But, he happens to bring home a special friend from the moon.The illustrations are whimsical and fun.
