5.0 out of 5 starsGreat value
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 18, 2020
Purchased to read to a five yr old grandson at bedtime (remotely during lockdown) he loved the story it it was almost guaranteed to allow him to go to sleep after a chapter or two 😀 . But he soon cottoned on and would always choose a different book or two first 😂 . It has a great storyline with just enough ‘out of the ordinary’ but not scary content. Good value as lasted about three weeks of storytelling! Recommended for parents/grandparents or self readers a little older.
5.0 out of 5 starsbetter yet her elder sister enjoys reading it to her

I bought this as a present for my daughter (5) who loves it, better yet her elder sister enjoys reading it to her. It's opened plenty of discussions about what's possible in space... other than cakes!
What I will say is how disappointing the paperback edition is, so much of the vibrancy of the brilliant illustrations by Sarah is lost because of the choices made in the publication. It doesn't distract from the story, nor have the girls commented on the difference. In future I will most definitely purchase the hardback versions, letting all the illustrator's hard work leap off the page and really bring to life a most excellent story.

We were given this by a friend and enjoyed it so much I bought a couple as birthday presents for 6 & 7th birthdays. My six year old and four year old loved the story - just scary enough in parts to make it really exciting. The storyline is very imaginative and got their minds working in wonderfully bonkers ways. It has a girl as the lead character - which is harder to find than you'd think in this day and age - and helped my daughter to really immerse herself in the story. The illustrations are also wonderful.
