  3. Brilliant! Readers are in for a treat that is out of this world. Prepare to be jettisoned by the seat of your pants into a thrilling cosmic adventure. Thoroughly enjoyable!

  4. I had a blast reading Space Kids! Space and sci-fi fans will be captivated with the sensational Misty Space Station setting and will be wishing they were joining Nash and his friends up there too. I loved the unravelling mystery throughout the book, along with the bursts of high-adrenaline thrills. Aleesah Darlison perfectly captures what it’s like to be exploring outer space and Nancy Bevington’s illustrations help to build up a thrilling adventure. I can’t wait to see what Nash, KC and Raj get up to next!

  5. I was hooked from the first illustration of a robot dog-ferret and it only got better from there. Action packed from page one, Space Kids: Sabotage took me into a world of adventure, fun, and excitement. With drama, suspense, and a surprise villain, young readers will be emersed in the mission to save the space station. A must read.

  6. Set in the future, this action-packed space adventure will have young readers enthralled from beginning to end as they follow how Nash, Raj and KC (known as the Space Kids) unravel a mystery on Misty Space Station. Aleesah has created a unique setting, witty narrative, and likeable characters everyone will love. Accompanying illustrations are a fabulous asset to those newly independent readers who need some extra support. This story is full of just the right amount of humour, tension, danger, and sabotage – a reader’s delight! And I promise you a few twists will keep all readers guessing right until the end.

  7. The illustrations by Nancy Bevington deserve recognition for the wonderful expressiveness of the characters – alive and robotic – and the way she has reflected the drama of the text through accenting the diagonal in her layout. The characters just jump off the page.
    Space Kids Sabotage is definitely a page-turner so try to make the time to read it through from start to finish in one sitting. Once you start, I can assure you, it’s hard to put down.
