Ziggy and his friends blast off to space camp in this freshly repackaged chapter book from bestselling author Sharon Draper!

Once he gets to camp, Ziggy learns that real-life space travel is even more exciting than what he has imagined. But when a mysterious shiny stone appears, Ziggy can’t help but wonder if his dream of alien contact has just come true....
