Space Dog by Mini Grey is an anarchic, adrenalin-packed adventure of The Highest Order. Utterly and joyously playful, wildly and lavishly imaginative, this dynamic and delightful journey exploring space and friendship is sublime. -- Zoe Playing by the Book Grey's witty language, from the hilarious exclamations made by Space Dog ( Thundering milkswamps! , Shivering Stilton! ) to the deliciously outlandish names of rare alien life forms (the Cruets of West Cutlery, the Fruitons of Crumble Major) has had us all giggling time and again, even on the 15th reading of Space Dog Her pacing is timed to perfection, with dramatic stretches interspersed with moments of great relief and humour, drawing readers, listeners, grown-ups, children ever more closely in to Grey's fantastic, phenomenal universe Spooniverse. -- Zoe Playing by the Book Grey's illustrations richly illuminate the world she has built to share with us, giving enormous pleasure every time they are returned to. -- Zoe Playing by the Book This hilarious and zany story with its weird and wonderful situations is full of laughs - and wonderful illustrations.

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

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

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!
