Synopsis

The Blackest Hole In Space by Penny Little

Following on from the success of The Biggest Hole in the World, this book takes us on an adventure in outer space, complete with die cut hole throughout. Charlie, his dad and Doggo the dog have spent all afternoon making a space rocket with alien receptors, a black-hole tracker and a time-travel switch. When Dad goes downstairs and before Charlie can say 'sizzling satellites' the rocket takes off!

Reviews

This book has been asked for repeatedly at storytime for days on end. * School Librarian * This is a book that will delight space enthusiasts. * Nursery World * Vincent Vigla's illustrations are lovely. He's got a fun, bold, cartoony style, that sits beautifully on the colourful planets in the background. Charlie and Doggo are wonderfully expressive characters. * The Bookbag * ...this ingenious little number manages to be factual and fictional simultaneously. Brilliant. * Families Magazine: The Bookseller Crow * ...ingenious.... * The Green Parent * A book that will delight space enthusiasts * Nursery World * On the Biggest Hole in the World: Young readers will manage to suspend disbelief to enjoy the sheer exhilaration of a fantasy journey which imparts useful information... Playful in text and illustration this book would make a welcome gift to enjoy at home or it would feed into key stage 1 science and geography topics. * Books for Keeps *

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.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.
