I was instantly pulled towards this one when I saw it on Netgalley. Scooby Doo? Velma? Galaxies? YES! But I am a bit disappointed.
I just had expected a bit more given that it was the Scooby Gang. I think Fred got one appearance, Daphne also one, Shaggy/Scooby several. The images of Velma were just the same x set. I just had expected a bit more playfulness, a bit more animated/interactive. Puzzles. Jokes. Comics. More a Scooby-feel. There is so much that you could have done. Now it very much felt like someone wrote a space book, decided it was a bit bland, and added some popular characters.
But I did like the information we got about space. I did like that it was written in a way that is accessible for even younger kids, and that is worth an applause, as sometimes even those books go a bit too deep in things. But this was actually fun and we learn about galaxies, the milky way, planets, about black holes, about photographs from space, and several other things. I also did like the photographs on every page.
If you are looking for a fun book about space, I would say yes, this is your book. If you come here because you are a Scooby fan along with a space fan.. I am not sure. It just feels as I said and that is a shame.
