Oooo this is a real treat.
She kinda had me on that title to be honest!
We join our intrepid adventurers having just successfully completed their mission of gathering the Lost Nuts of Legend … all they have to do now, is get them home.
As so often happens at just the wrong moment, the Sat Nav malfunctions & the maps have been, urm, eaten. They are lost. In space. Yikes!
What follows is a series of funny episodes as each double page sees the motley crew visiting a variety of different planets in order to find their way home.
The Nut-free planet had us giggling, and there’s the Death Banana ..! Too clever.
Star Wars and Star Trek fans will spot a few giggle inducing touches here.
Utilising a comic style format Elys Dolan‘s attention to detail, cheeky sense of humour and ability to not to take herself too seriously combine to create a winning formula.
Manic, funny and filled to the brim with wonderful touches Nuts In Space is a picture book to pour over, it will benefit from many, many readings.
