Space Taxi launches TODAY!!!


I had a blast writing for younger readers this time around. Space Taxi: Archie Takes Flight is the first in the series. The second, “Space Taxi: Water Planet Rescue,” will be out in September.

Check out the awesome (and informative!) website our publisher is making for the series. They have lots of cool stuff planned in the coming months but you’ll be able to check out a preview now, focusing on the science behind the story. You can also read a sneak peek of the story!

    Yay yay yay this is so awesome I can’t wait to check it out!!โ—โ•

    YAY!! I’m so excited about all these new books (mainly the willow falls series continuing)!!!! You are the BEST author in the ENTIRE universe!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I look at your website almost every day! I have a few questions though… Do you think that someone who isn’t a huge fan of fantasy but loves everything about how you write should give Space Taxi and Pi in the Sky a chance? Also, in your blog you said that you had a blast writing for younger audiences, do you think that ages 10-12 would enjoy? Again, I’m SUPER excited about your new books! When I found out you were making another Willow Falls book, I started screaming as high pitched as logically possible (which my mom was not happy about (-;) then I started doing ballet while giggling. Plus I started shedding a few tears. When I found out you were making another candymakers book I started screaming “whoooo hoooo” and random stuff. When I found out you were making Space Taxi I stared in awe and made funny noises! What is your faviorite book you’ve written? My faviorite book is A Mango Shaped Space! Well thank you sooooooooooo much for reading, I realllllllllly appreciate it! PLEASE REPLY ASAP!!!!!!!
    P.S. Your daughter name rocks! ;-D

      Great name, lol! I’m so sorry for the delay in getting this letter but I hope you’ve been great! Thank you so much for your excitement over the different books, that means a lot to me. I’d love to hear what you’re up to now, if you get this! Big hugs to you and your mom!! Wendy

  6. Morgan on April 7, 2014 at 9:35 pm

    Wow!! I just checked out the website your publisher made, and I’ve got to say, its adorable! my little bro would probably love to go explore all those interesting facts while cartoons move around!

    You did it again Wendy! You created the perfect book!


  7. Analisse on April 12, 2014 at 11:56 pm

    Wow, I checked out the website, and it is so cute! It’s not as boring as some websites, and it has so many cool moving cartoons! My brother, who’s in 3rd grade, loves science would probably love this! I especially love how Archie’s space taxi goes down and eventually falls on Earth. I think it’s really neat that people came up with that. The facts are also not too long, and perfect for kids to see at their free time!

  8. Laurel on April 13, 2014 at 7:44 pm

    I’m too old to read this series, but I’m positive that the younger boys(and maybe some girls) will absolutely LOVE this series!!! My favorite book series of all time is definitely The Willow Falls series, please don’t make Amanda and Leo start dating, it would ruin the story for me…ok maybe not ruin, but I don’t think that it is a good topic for this very last book. And I also am soooo excited for the candymakers sequel, It looks like it will be wonderful, and I also really enjoyed the first book, so I’m hoping for the second book to fufill what I would like.

    Thanks for writing

  9. Analisse on April 14, 2014 at 1:21 am

    I got the book for my brother’s birthday! He loves it! Thank you Wendy, for making the PERFECT book!!!!!

      • Analisse on April 24, 2014 at 5:12 am

        Wow, I can’t believe it! Book three already? That’s fast!

  10. Analisse on April 17, 2014 at 4:58 am

    Wow! The website looks great! I LOVE how Archie’s taxi eventually lands on earth. It’s sooooooooooo neat!!!!!

  11. Chloe on April 17, 2014 at 7:21 am

    That’s really awesome! I checked the website with my brother and he LOVED it. My parents say that we can probably get the book when it comes out. All your other books are fantastic as well!

  12. angelica on April 20, 2014 at 9:02 pm

    OMG I can not wait to read it! I just finished twice upon a time Rapunzel it was so interesting

  13. Ariel on April 20, 2014 at 10:30 pm

    How do you write such amazing books! This one is just as good! You are very talented and an outstanding author! Keep up the good work!

    Sincerely, Ariel

    • Wendy Mass on April 23, 2014 at 9:50 pm

      You are very sweet, thank you!!

        I am just finishing up eleven birthdays BIG FAN

  14. Amelia on April 23, 2014 at 6:53 pm

    That’s really awesome!
    I can’t wait to read it!

  15. Julianna on April 24, 2014 at 1:26 pm

    I’m so happy you wrote yet another great book! I cannot wait to read it, and when I do I’ll most likely be thirsty for more of your books! I’m so going to get this new book! Thanks for inspiring me to want to become an author!

  16. Emma on May 4, 2014 at 2:00 pm

    I just read a preview of it and it sounds like a great book! I am too old for it but my little sister who is in kindergarten will enjoy listening to it and looking at the funny, wacky pictures! And, she loves to learn about outer space! My favorite book of yours so far is A Mango Shaped Space. I loved the ending because the kitten, Mustard, will be with Mia now and comfort her when things are hard just like Mango did. I loved the book so much that when I get a cat of my own, I am going to definitely name it Mango! Did anyone else like the A Mango Shaped Space?

  17. Daniela on May 5, 2014 at 1:49 pm

    Wendy, I absolutely love your books! If I could have anything in the world, it would be to meet you! I have read your twice upon a time series and adored them. Your books take me to another place and make me feel happy, even when I am having the worst day of my life. I have also read your Willow Falls series. My first time reading a book by you was in the 3rd grade. (I am in the 6th) I picked up 11 gifts at my school library and instantly fell in love with your books. Thank you for being such an amazing author. I have read the
    Candymakers more than 5 times in the past year! I have even been asking for just your books for my birthday every year since I learned about you. This Saturday is my birthday and I will be receiving The Last Gift! I can’t wait to read it! Is there a way that you can come visit my school? I live in wilmington, nc. Have a great week!
    Sincerely, your best fan!
    In your next book, can you make the main character named Daniela? That would be the best present in the world! Thank you so much for reading this!
    You helped me get throughout the hardest times in my life. Thank you for that.

  20. Arianna on June 6, 2014 at 10:29 am

    Hello, I see my friend Deanna Reynolds reading almost all your books and kept telling me to read them and I look forward to reading some of your books. I have a question, do you like Veronica Roth’s and Suzanne Collin’s book? I’m a junkie for the Hunger Games trilogy and Divergent trilogy [which I all read] if you didn’t read them you should read them but still I really want to read your books.

    • Wendy Mass on August 17, 2016 at 7:38 pm

      Great recommendations! Tell Deanna I personally say thank you and agree with her. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi! This is kinda the wrong post, but me and my friend Abby just finished reading Jeremy Fink and the Meaning Of Life for school. We really loved the book, but we have a question. Liszt got really nervous and self-conscious around Samantha… so we got the impression that Lizzy might be gay. Are we on the wrong track? Or are we on to something?
    A reader

    • Wendy Mass on October 27, 2020 at 5:10 pm

      Hi guys, so glad you read the book for school and enjoyed it – I’ve read some books in school that I haven’t quite felt the same way about LOL. I think she was nervous around Samantha more because she had just never hung out with a teenager before and was a little self-conscious. As I recall, she had a little crush on Samantha’s brother. But really you can interpret it anyway you like ๐Ÿ™‚ All my best to you both. xo, Wendy

  22. Seti on October 5, 2019 at 7:38 pm

    • Wendy Mass on November 24, 2019 at 4:40 pm

      Hi Seti! What a cool name!! I think you need to write that book, I’d be the first to read it! I’m glad you listened to the willow falls books, I’m a huge audiobook fan too, and think the narrator did such a great job! All my best to you!!

  23. Aryonnah on November 7, 2019 at 4:17 pm

    If Amanda and Loe start dating it will be the most adorable thing ever! I mean, I don’t know if they do or not because I’ve only read 11 Birthdays, 13 Gifts, and I’m in the middle of reading Every Soul a Star.


    • Aryonnah on November 7, 2019 at 4:18 pm


    • Wendy Mass on November 24, 2019 at 4:34 pm
