Praise for Money Doesn’t Grow on Mars:
"No Place Like Space is a charming story that practically reads itself, with funky black and white illustrations and tons of action, dialogue, humor, and character development. Additional titles in this exciting, addictive juvenile adventure series that are also highly recommended include: Alien in the Outfield, May the Votes Be with You, and Money Doesn’t Grow on Mars."—Children’s Bookwatch
