Space Dog

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Jonathan Cape

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!
