Scheming scientists want to find the secrets behind Norby's antigravity abilities — but they have to dismantle him to do it! The mixed-up robot and young space cadet Jeff Wells go on the run to Jamya, a planet inhabited by hungry dragons and angry robots. Will the futuristic friends survive, and can Norby's newly discovered telepathy and time-travel powers save the day?
The second book of The Norby Chronicles, this novel was written by Janet Asimov and her husband, Isaac Asimov — the author of I, Robot and many other robot stories. It's a great way to introduce young readers to the thrills of science fiction.

About the Author

Isaac Asimov began his Foundation series at the age of 21, not realizing that it would one day be considered a cornerstone of science fiction. During his legendary career, Asimov penned over 400 books on subjects ranging from science to Shakespeare to history, though he was most loved for his award-winning science fiction sagas. Asimov entertained and educated readers of all ages for close to five decades, until he died, at the age of 72, in April 1992.
