Miniaturized Drewd (Andrew Dubble), his sister Judy, and the faithful robot, THUD, are lost in the desert. They have pushed the purple panic button on THUDD's chest which summons their uncle, but how will he find his niece and nephew, who are no bigger than his thumb, in the desert? THUD keeps up a running informative commentary that let's the reader know about the various flora and fauna--many of whom wish to eat the children! This is a good book for children who are just beginning to read longer fiction. The action is fast paced, there are mini-science lessons embedded in the fiction, and the print is large and crisp. The illustrations are clear, but not intrusive.
