The Lovereading4Kids comment

Rex may only be 6 years old but he is determined to conquer the world and become King of Space so that the WHOLE UNIVERSE will know his name! His plans are going well until he incurs the wrath of the Galactic Alliance and that is when his tough-talking mum gets involved!

A message to parents from Jonny Duddle: I have been informed by my grown-up readers that the gatefold page in each of my picture books can be a bit cumbersome during bedtime reading. But kids say they love them, so you parents will just have to suffer for the children and remember it's still a lot easier than folding an ordnance survey map in high winds.

Synopsis

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.

This has the same anarchic charm and wonderfully detailed illustration as Duddle's bestselling Pirate books. a guaranteed paperback hit. * The Bookseller *

About the Author

Jonny Duddle

One of the World Book Day 2015 Authors Jonny spent his childhood in the wet and windy hills of North Wales, exploring forests, riding his bike for miles and miles, scrumping apples and building tree-houses. When he wasn’t outside he was drawing and busily creating worlds, sprawled across his bedroom floor, with paper everywhere.

Jonny eventually ended up designing characters for computer games. Whilst working as a freelance games artist, he wrote a picture book about a sea monster called ‘The Pirate Cruncher’ and did all the pictures too, which was published by Templar in 2009. Then he helped design the characters for Aardman’s stop-motion movie ‘The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists!’.

Nowadays, Jonny has returned to the wet and windy hills of North Wales. He spends most of his time drawing and busily creating worlds, sprawled across his studio floor, with paper everywhere. When he’s not drawing, he likes exploring forests, riding his bike for miles and miles, scrumping apples, fixing old cars and building garden sheds.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
