In Planet Juno: A Picture Book by David Serra, young readers get to see a lonely explorer traveling to the planet Juno. After landing on the planet, he begins his quest, but all the time he is being watched by the inhabitants of the planet. He sees an orange bush in the forest, which turns out to be a predatory creature that attacks the explorer. A huge snake-like creature intervenes and, when the explorer wakes up, he is in another place and face to face with the snake. Will the snake-like creature harm him or help him out with exploring Juno? Or will it try to eat him like the orange bush?

The story is adorable and filled with unpredictable happenings. The sketches are excellent and they give a good pace and movement to the story and bring the scenes and the characters to life. It's an excellent storybook that will help children create their own stories with the help of colorful sketches, and will also make them think and come up with new ideas. Parents and grandparents can also use it for bedtime story-telling and it is also a good book for interactive sessions in classrooms and school libraries.

The book is encouraging and motivating as it will help young readers to imagine and be more creative, and write their own stories with the help of drawings. Books like this give ideas to readers to come up with something of their own creation and explore new places, ideas, and thoughts.
