Om-Bork was a sweet and fun read.  I really enjoyed it! 
I don't think I've ever read a Christian science fiction children's book before, so Om-Bork is definitely unique in that sense.  I wasn't sure how Robert Lampros would pull all of those elements together, but he did it very well.  

The story was engaging and meaningful.  As well as funny!  The illustrations really added a lot of depth, humor and meaning to the story.  I loved Om-Bork's face and facial expressions.

Being that I have a four year old and this book is recommended for ages 7-12, I read Om-Bork on my own.  But, I think children ages 5 and up would understand and enjoy Om-Bork.

I really liked this book and would definitely read more from Robert Lampros.
