The Lovereading4Kids comment

A Reader Review Panel Pick of the Year 2015 - chosen by Alexander Bisland, aged 10 To describe Cosmoe Wiener’s adventures as action-packed is a bit like calling a red giant star quite big. With titles such as Black Hole Joystick Battle Heroes each of the book’s short chapters is a crack-a-lacking ding dong of daring or daft exploits as Earth boy Cosmoe and his friend Humphree career across the galaxy in their spaceship-cum-fast-food-stall. Laid out almost like a graphic novel with cartoon strips, full page illustrations, speech bubbles etc. this will hook young readers from the very beginning and keep them turning the pages. Already a hit with kids on Galactic Hot Dogs is set to be massive. ~ Andrea Reece

Galactic Hotdogs: Cosmoe's Wiener Getaway by Max Brallier

Cosmoe was just your average, adventure-seeking 13-year-old orphan back on Earth, until the strange night he was yanked into space. Now he's got all the adventure he craved and more aboard the Neon Wiener ~ part spaceship, part food truck ~ selling their trademarked dish of 'Galactic Hot Dogs'.

Cosmoe and friends run into trouble when Princess Dagger, a half-evil, half-awesome princess manages to kidnap herself onto their ship and suddenly her evil mother is gunning for the Neon Wiener...
