Review

Even though intrepid heroes Space Dog, Astrocat and Moustronaut are sworn enemies, their mission solving planetary problems throughout the Dairy Quadrant never ceases. One evening, Space Dog's settling to a lonely evening of dinner and Dogopoly. Suddenly a distress call sounds: Astrocat's saucer is sinking - fast. 

Putting aside old enmities, Space Dog rescues Astrocat and discovers his unexpected shipmate is brilliant at Dogopoly and cooking; suddenly they're friends.  Another distress call sounds! Cheese Ants have captured Moustronaut. Without hesitation, Space Dog and Astrocat rescue him too - and find a valuably nimble-fingered companion. Zooming on through space, they're enemies no more. 

Visually and graphically inventive, packed with tongue-in-cheek humour and witty details, this comic-style picture book delights in subverting the conventions of epic space adventure!
