‘Immensely, cheerily silly’ Guardian
Dog lost in space? Grown an extra head and don’t know why? Pocket money stolen by a green blob? You need the Space Detectives!
Connor and Ethan are spending their summer holidays aboard the world’s first orbiting city, Starville (basically Beverley Hills in space!). The amazing space station is bursting with celebrities and the mega-rich. But Connor and Ethan are too busy selling ice cream to see the sights.
However, neither of our heroes can resist a mystery and when they discover the space station is hurtling on a collision course with the moon (eep!) they know they need to step in. This is a case for the SPACE DETECTIVES!
Can Connor and Ethan find the culprit and save Starville from its impending doom?
LOOK OUT FOR SPACE DETECTIVES: EXTRA WEIRD CREATURES
A thunderously good read, so funny and action packed. I loved that it was fast paced and packed with wonderfully weird, out of this world characters brilliantly drawn. Children are going to love it! * Serena Patel, author of ANISHA, ACCIDENTAL DETECTIVE * SPACE DETECTIVES immerses you into an AMAZINGLY FUN galaxy of aliens, mystery, intrigue and has more twists than a puff pastry cheese twisty! Connor and Ethan are a ZILLION times better than Sherlock Holmes AND they have a sense of humour that is OUT OF THIS WORLD...watch out for the Snarltoothed Grizloid though! * Rikin Parekh * "Perfect space escapism with incredible art that screams "make me into a long-running cartoon please Netflix". A visual treat for younger readers with just the right amount of danger and drama." * Louie Stowell * An intergalactic giggle-fest * Emer Stamp * This book was definitely a joy and a 5 star * NetGalley Reviewer * A great adventure filled with laughs & hijinks! * NetGalley Reviewer * I can't think of many children who would not enjoy this! * Educator, NetGalley Reviewer * Action and humour aplenty * Bookseller on SPY TOYS *
