Space Hoppers: Mudmen of Mars by Tommy Donbavand


Space Hoppers: Mudmen of Mars by Tommy Donbavand

Space Hoppers is a brand new series of hilarious sci-fi fiction from popular author, Tommy Donbavand. Set in the year 2281, Space Hoppers follows the adventures of special agents Dan Fireball, Astra Moon and Volt as they patrol the universe, fighting crimes and chasing the Solar System's most notorious villain, The Geezer! It's little wonder that countless missions to Mars failed to find any signs of life on the red planet and just sent back pictures of dust and rocks; the inhabitants of Mars ARE the dust and rocks. Martians mix water with the planet's surface to obtain temporary bodies - then melt back into the landscape when hibernating. However, The Geezer has found a new use for the Martian gloop - as an ingredient for the ultimate youth cream! Dan, Astra and Volt investigate and find themselves knee deep in muddy madness.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

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.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
