Ordinary kids are introduced to an extraordinary galaxy full of pirates, monkeys, and other colorful creatures--both human and otherwise--in this first book of this "absolutely action-packed" ( School Library Journal ) fantasy-adventure trilogy.   On the night Emma Garton's supposedly boring parents are kidnapped, she is forced to face the truth that they've been lying to her about many things. The most important of which? They aren't even from planet Earth .   To find her mom and dad, Emma and her best friend, Herbie, must leave Earth and enter the Strands--the waterways of space, where huge galleons ply the intergalactic seas. But a journey through the constellations won't be easy--not with every scoundrel in the galaxy determined to find them.   In this interstellar adventure, YALSA Alex Award-winning author Zo#65533; Ferraris transports readers to a vast magical universe filled with fantastical creatures, merciless villains, and fearless heroes. Praise for  THE GALAXY PIRATES: HUNT FOR THE PYXIS "[A]bsolutely action-packed. This first book in a trilogy will keep kids reading in order to find out what happens next." - School Library Journal   "This book will have an audience and will appeal to younger fans of Dave Barry's Peter and the Starcatchers." -- Booklist
