Review

A touching children's book * Daily Telegraph * Will send your imagination into orbit! * Mr Ripley's Enchanted Books Blog * Sure to be a hit with young enquiring minds, this is a tale which is heart-breaking and hilarious in equal measure. * The School Librarian * This is an out-of-this world adventure that is also a heartening story about the importance of friendship and family. * The Week Junior * ...classic Cottrell Boyce: zany, lay-out-loud funny and with a very strong emotional heart. * INIS reading guide * whimsical, heart-wrenching and hilarious. * Scotsman * A wonderful and exciting story about friendship and appreciating what you have. * Independent * A touching tale . . . told with wild humour and panache * Telegraph * a spiky, effervescent treat, like Spielberg's ET put in a blender with a bottle of Irn-Bru. * The Financial Times * Wholly original and exceptionally funny * The Bookseller Book of the Month * Full of heart and emotion that might just bring a tear to your eye. If it doesn't though it's still got lightsabers and alien space dogs. * Tom Fletcher, Tom Fletcher Book Club * Light-hearted and profound * Sunday Times Book of the Week *
