Mr. Flinn's best students go to the space museum a few hours away from Tellis, their planet. But Mr. Flinn is fed up with them. They argue. And they don't get along.

But on the way home, Mr. Flinn is knocked out when their self-driving space bus is hit by a space rock, which knocks out the engine. The eight sixth graders have to figure out how to work together, especially when they learn something more sinister than a rock disabled their bus.

Lizard in a Zoot Suit

Marco Finnegan (author, illustrator)

Publisher: Lerner Publishing Group ISBN: 9781541582361

Los Angeles, 1943. It's the era of the Zoot Suit Riots, and Flaca and Cuata have a problem. It's bigger than being grounded by their strict mother. It's bigger than tensions with the soldiers stationed nearby. And it's shaped like a five-foot-tall lizard. When a lost member of an unknown underground species needs help, the sisters must scramble to keep their new friend away from a corrupt military scientist—but they'll do it in style. Cartoonist Marco Finnegan presents Lizard in a Zoot Suit, an outrageous, historical, sci-fi graphic novel.
