Synopsis

 

Science and laughs combine in this out-of-this-world adventure, featuring illustrations by Ben Mantle!

'Pure joy' PIERS TORDAY

'[A] warm, funny alien read' VASHTI HARDY

'A bright, brainy book' THE TIMES

'If you like your science with a dose of laughter, then this rollicking space adventure is for you.' WEEK JUNIOR

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).
