The King of Space Summary

The King of Space by Jonny Duddle

Rex looks like an average 6 year old, living on his parents' moog farm and going to mini galactic citizen school, but he's going to be King of Space! With the help of unsuspecting friends, Rex creates an army of warbots with dung-blasters and begins his conquest of the known worlds. But when he goes too far, only one person can save him from the wrath of the Galactic Alliance - his tough-talking mum!

The King of Space Reviews

Duddle follows the huge success of his Pirates titles with a brand new adventure... Looks tremendous fun, with fabulous characters and his trademark wit. * The Bookseller *
'An intergalactic adventure with... wonderfully detailed pictures, anarchic wit and plenty of action.' * The Bookseller Children's Buyer's Guide *
'"The King of Space" is every bit as good as we dreamed it would be. It seems a little remiss to be talking about a potential children's picture book of the year but if this isn't in the running we'll be sending Rex and his warbots along to find out why not!' * Read it Daddy blog *
'...the imagination flowing on these pages will delight any child... And undoubtedly their parents also.' * Waterstones Blog *
'The art is as inventive as the plot and firmly establishes the outer-space setting. Hilarious moogs appear as cows wearing space gear, and images of Rex's alien classmates reflect the depth of Duddle's creative mind. This action-packed story, starring a naughty boy, is one that readers will not soon forget.' -- Lynn Vanca * SLJ Reviews *
'This is a beautiful, huggable book and one I'd put on every bookshelf.' 'Too good to miss, grab a copy as soon as you can.' * Child-Led Chaos *
"This could prove to be a new favorite among young children on the lookout for of action and humor." -- Jesse Karp * bookstoreonline.com *
Duddle has enjoyed massive success with his award winning Pirate titles, so expect big things of his latest venture, an intergalactic adventure with much of the same appeal:wonderfully detailed pictures, anarchic wit and plenty of action * The Bookseller Children's Buyer's Guide *
