It looked like a shooting star at first – a silver streak of light, glowing bright against the darkness of the night. And trailing in its wake soared three more glowing spheres, their lights flashing blue and white as they fell towards Middlewich Forest. But if anyone could have heard the noise coming from inside the silver streak of light they would have realized that this wasn’t a shooting star – it was a screaming star.
About the book
Science and laughs combine in this out-of-this-world adventure!
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?
Featuring cover and inside illustration from Ben Mantle, Space Oddity combines science, comedy and adventure!
