    I think I must have been in something like second grade when I read this book. That was a long time ago. It's for young readers, and was one of the earliest science-fiction books that I ever read. Frankly I only vaguely remember the plot, so please don't consider my synopsis here to be accurate or complete. From what I remember, it was about a young boy and his family living in a small human settlement on an alien planet far from earth. Also on the planet was an intelligent humanoid native alien I think I must have been in something like second grade when I read this book. That was a long time ago. It's for young readers, and was one of the earliest science-fiction books that I ever read. Frankly I only vaguely remember the plot, so please don't consider my synopsis here to be accurate or complete. From what I remember, it was about a young boy and his family living in a small human settlement on an alien planet far from earth. Also on the planet was an intelligent humanoid native alien race ("native alien"? I know, sounds like a contradiction in terms) with 6 fingers on each hand. Also on the planet are these giant creatures that are a threat to the human settlement. The humans want to use violence to kill or drive off the large creatures, but the native humanoids know of a better way to deal with them. They all get together and perform this special chant that pacifies the large creatures and even makes them fall asleep. The humans are skeptical that it will work, they're more inclined to use weapons to scare them off. But in the end the indigenous humanoids demonstrate it to the humans when the creatures attack the human settlement, and violence is averted. The moral of the story is that you shouldn't use violence to solve your problems. It's a plug for pacifism. Or something like that. I barely remember. Anyway, at the time I was very touched by the story, it hit me pretty powerfully emotionally. So I give it five stars. If I read it today I probably wouldn't, but I try to rate books based on how they affected me at the time I read them. As for the second book, "The Drought on Ziax II", I remember even less about that one. There's a drought, they have a problem with some really aggressive native vegetation that can wrap itself around people & trap them. That's about all I remember. I remember liking it, but not as much as the first book.

    This has to be the first book I ever read. I really can't review this properly because I would have been maybe about 8 or 9 years old when I read it. However it has to be my first book. So I have given it five stars for nostalgic purposes only as I can't remember what I thought of the story.
