rollicking space adventure is for you.’ WEEK
You might think that this story is going to be an intergalactic
adventure filled with UFOs, black holes, killer robots and some
very foul-smelling aliens. And you’d be right.
But it’s mostly about a boy called Jake, his embarrassing dad,
and the mind-boggling question … are we really alone in the universe?
Funny, easy to read and hugely likeable, Space Oddity
combines science, comedy and adventure for ages 7 and up.
A new, younger story from award-winning writer Christopher
Edge, author of The Infinite Lives of Maisie Day.
Came out of The Big Idea Competition, from a story entry
by scientist Dr Sarah Ryan.
Cover and inside illustrations by Ben Mantle (The
Land of Roar and I, Cosmo).
