CatStronauts: Slapdash Science: 10/03/19
CatStronauts: Slapdash Science by Drew Brockington is the fifth in the series about the world's best astronauts. Except they're cats in a world of cats, so they're catstronauts.
This time the focus is on science experiments. It opens with a science fair of the ground control employees. The scientist whose project on Pluto doesn't win she's later given a consolation prize, a chance to be the boss while the actual one goes on vacation.
The vacation happens to coincide with the next space mission — this time to the space station. The main experiment is zero gravity gardening but lack of sleep and some other poor decisions lead to a big and possibly deadly mess.
It's a humorous look at leadership and responsibility and the consequences of cutting corners. There's also a brick joke that ends up saving the day.
I don't know if a sixth book is planned, but if there is, I definitely plan to read it.
