Read Space Brat by Bruce Coville Online


It wasn't really Blork's fault he was a brat. It was the piece of eggshell that got stuck behind his ear the day he was hatched. It made him cry. But baby Splatoons aren't supposed to cry. So Blork got a brat label stuck on his head....

    I had to help my son read this because he decided to pick it up from the school library. The cover is what made him pick up the book because it had green alien's. When he usually picks up a book he is intrigued by it and sits there entrapped by the words, but this story just didn't do that for him. I agree with a few other viewers stating that Space Brat seems to give excuse after excuse for bad behavior. If I was in a bookstore looking at this book, I but it back on the shelf because of the behavior fact and the slight bullying. I get it came out in 1993, but these issues are very well presented in everyday school, my son doesn't need to read about tantrums, bullies not being stopped and being excused for bad behavior.

    Huh. 2.5 stars. At best.Good lessons learned? But honestly? I'm not a big fan of the space brat. It feels like there's too many excuses for being bad, and the reasoning for getting him to be better behaved is a good swift kick in the seat of the pants? Yeah, it's meant to be funny, and it IS after a fashion. But as a parent I'm not a fan of this. I'll give the next book a try, but honestly am not really inclined to recommend this when there are better books out there.

    Space Brat is the story of a boy (alien) and his podnooble (pet). Through the story Blork learns some valuable lessons about responsibility and respect, but Bruce Coville does this in a very un-preachy way. This isn't my favorite Bruce Coville book, but it's certainly a fun story and great conversation starter for younger readers.

    These books are bad, very bad. I gather they're intended for a younger than usual audience, but they're still too lesson laden and too simplistic. The other Space Brats novels are pretty much the same.

    I remember picking this book out while at my elementary school book fair one year. As a child, I was in somewhat of fearful awe of these- pardon the pun- alien customs. :P Now, I respect how this book encouraged me to look at universal matters of childhood in a creative way. Yay for sci-fi!

    Bruce Coville for the younger set, the ones just beginning to read chapter books. My kids still enjoyed it, but I wonder if it'll really teach them to conquer their own brattiness . .

    I read this book back in the third grade. I liked it at the time, but now its just plain childish. I really don't understand da story line.

    A charming book; loved this one when I was younger. The illustrations really make it come alive. And the names are fantastic: Blork, Lunk, Moomie Peevik, etc.
