Spiders, spaceships and the color pink

Escape from the Drooling Octopod!Escape from the Drooling Octopod! by Robert West
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This time the adventures for Beamer, Scilla, and Ghoulie start when they are asked by their school teachers to deliver some school supplies to a house in the neighborhood. Of course this is no ordinary house. It's pink—everything around the house, everything inside the house—except the things made of glass. When they drop off the school things, they thought they saw a girl in pink in the shadows; so they make it their mission to discover why this girl is prisoner in a pink palace.

The tree-ship takes them on another adventure—though like this others I'm not sure where or why. The mystery of Molgotha the giant spider with the glowing web is kind of resolved, but then again, not really. For me some things were wrapped up in too neat of a bow, while others seemed to be left dangling.

I would still recommend this book and the rest of the trilogy for upper elementary looking for a Christian sci-fi adventure.
