In Muchokids: Galaxia and Her Quest to Save the Universe, readers are introduced to a young space girl named Galaxia. The opening book in this new space-themed series sets the stage for a galactic battle that is sure to intrigue readers young and old.
Galaxia is on the run after the destruction of her home planet. She manages to escape with just one peculiar relic—a mystical book with special powers. Her father has asked her to keep the Book of Azbel safe, even though she has no idea what the book can do. All she knows is that she has to keep it out of the reach of any unsavory characters. She sets off through space to try and find some answers, leaving her burning planet in ruins behind her.
As she begins her mission, she meets a young boy who will become her trusted confidante and aide. Although their friendship gets off to a rocky start, Kazar helps Galaxia understand the depths of magic contained in the book and the impending doom that will come if the book falls into the wrong hands.

This first book introduces readers to the main characters and begins to lay out the details of their impending struggle. Readers will be left wanting more and looking forward to future installments.
