Cakes in Space

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Astra and her family are off on an exciting journey through space to start a wonderful new life on a new planet. Everyone is tucked up in their pods, to sleep through the long journey to their new home. But when Astra suddenly awakes in the midst of the voyage, she realises something is terribly wrong.

The Nom-O-Tron machine in the spaceship canteen has malfunctioned, and now the ship is being taken over by monstrous cakes - cakes with a killer instinct! Then there's the small problem of the alien space salvage crew who have invaded their ship in the quest for the only technology they haven't yet been able to master themselves… spoons! With everyone else still in a state of suspended sleep, it's down to Astra and her robot friend Pilbeam to save the ship.

This lively and exciting space story from the duo behind Oliver and the Seawigs is packed with fun, adventure and plenty of surreal humour. Both boys and girls will be immediately drawn to this attractive book, bursting with McIntyre's engaging artwork. With plenty of silliness, as well as some knowing jokes that will tickle adults as much as kids, this is a wonderfully wacky delight that the whole family will enjoy.
