Attack of the Spider Bots Episode II(The Star Fighters of Murphy Street) by Robert West

Reading level: Ages 9-12
Paperback: 160 pages
Publisher: Zonderkidz (April 1, 2008)

From the Publisher:
Taking a shortcut home from school, the Star-Fighters are chased by a horrible one-eyed creature into a cavern that houses an entire miniature world. Everything is animated—cars, trucks, moon, clouds, stars—but no one is at the controls. Who would make such a thing and then abandon it?
The Star-Fighters’ search leads them on a wild adventure to a palatial mansion within a wintry jungle that hides a terrible secret—a secret that defines the limits of trusting God.

My Review: In Book Two of the StarFighters of Murphy Street the star fighters encounter even more adventure. In Book One the kids sorta made friends with the elderly Mrs. Parker who lives next door to Beamer and the spaceship tree house. As it turns out she has a brother who was an engineer many years ago and is being controlled and held captive in his strange house. The star fighters also encounter a homeless boy named Jack that they try to help. God has designed each of us with special gifts and for a special purpose is the main theme for the whole series. I am looking forward to reading book three Escape from the Drooling Octopod. :)
