Cosmic Calamity by Guy Bass

An intergalactic adventure with aliens, spaceships and goo galore! Filled with fun black-and-white line illustrations. Hex is the worst space invader on Planet X. Every time he tries to do anything it goes wrong. He can't shoot a ray gun, he can't fly a spaceship and he couldn't spot an earthling even if it jumped up and bit him on the probe! But it's not his fault - he's cursed. When Hex discovers that his long-lost father is happily living on Planet Earth, he can't believe his luck. He decides to give up space invading for good and join his dad. The only problem is, Hex can't fly a spaceship...Will he make it in one piece?

About the Author

Guy Bass
Q&A with author Guy Bass: Q: Where did the inspiration for Spynosaur come from?
I was scribbling things down and the name popped into my head. I though the idea of a dinosaur whose job it was to be inconspicuous might be funny.
Q: Who is your favourite character from the book?
Probably Danger Monkey. He's a spider-monkey spy (spy-der monkey?) who has an insult for every occasion. I really like Amber too - she's Spynosaur's daughter and sidekick, and while she admires her dad, she also finds him incredibly embarrassing.
Q: If your brain was transported into the mind of any animal what would it be?
A dolphin. I'd be as at home in the ocean as I would be in ... another ocean. Q: Following on from the above, would you be a spy or something else?
I've never tried golf. Maybe I could be the world's first and only golfing dolphin, Golphin.
Q: What’s next for Spynosaur?
I'm writing Spynosaur: Goldenclaw at the moment. Spynosaur is desperate to find a new arch enemy, but the monstrous Goldenclaw is too villainous even for him. It's got everything a dinosaur secret agent comedy adventure story should have, with added gold.
