The Saturnians in The Little Jupitertion are actually really interesting. You don’t see a lot of them in the book, but I have some pretty cool lore on them. They were actually the first to colonize Jupiter’s moons. Also, I’m not sure if they’re the only ones, but they worship God and refer to him as Iam. You can read the book here: https://www.quotev.com/story/14169871/The-Little-Jupitertion/1 It’s short, and I wrote it kinda quickly, so it needs a major rewrite, but my friends enjoyed it so it must not be totally horrible haha.
I think we have The Boys in the Boat, maybe I’ll take a look at it..
I highly suggest The Flying Inn by G.K. Chesterton and Miss Buncle’s Book by D.E. Stevenson. Miss Buncle’s Book isn’t technically adventurous, but it definitely still has the vibes.
