About the Book and Author
This is the first title in an imaginative and engaging series of mystery adventures set in space by writer Mark Powers and illustrator Dapo Adeola. The books will all be published by Bloomsbury. Book Two is soon!
Connor and Ethan are spending their summer holidays aboard the world’s first orbiting city, Starville (basically Beverley Hills in space!). The amazing space station is bursting with celebrities and the mega-rich. But Connor and Ethan are too busy selling ice cream to see the sights.
However, neither of our heroes can resist a mystery and when they discover the space station is hurtling on a collision course with the moon (eep!) they know they need to step in. This is a case for the SPACE DETECTIVES!
If you like mysteries and funny space creatures you will like this book
I liked the cover of this book. It was bright and the boys were whirling about in space and there was ice cream. I love ice cream!
Ethan and Connor are the names of the 2 space detectives. They live in Starville in space. There is a cool picture at the start of the book which shows you what it looks like. All through the story there are illustrations which are really good and show you what a Tufted Grotsnobbler and other space creatures look like.
Ethan and Connor are really clever and brave and manage to solve mysteries to keep everyone safe.
At the end of the book there is a quiz all about the book which was fun. I also liked that we got to read the next 2 chapters of the next book.
