Cakes In Space

by Philip Reeve, illustrated by Sarah McIntyre - £6.99  Oxford University Press (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780192734907 | ISBN 10: 0192734903

Astra's family are all snoring in their sleeping pods aboard their spaceship, but Astra is WIDE AWAKE.
 
With her robot friend, Pilbeam, she goes off exploring and soon finds out the ship is in deep trouble. It's been knocked off course and invaded by a gang of Poglites, an alien salvage crew searching for spoonage (they just LOVE collecting spoons)! But even the Poglites need Astra's help when they discover something far more sinister lurking in the canteen. Sure, they're cakes; but no one would describe them as sweet.
 
Another splendiferous adventure from dynamic duo, Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre, bursting with brilliant two-colour illustrations.
 
Recommended for readers aged 7+
