Cakes in Space Summary

Cakes in Space by Philip Reeve

Astra's family are all snoring in their sleeping pods, but Astra is WIDE AWAKE. With her 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 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.
