9780141500560: Mungo and the Spiders From Space

Mungo was really enjoying his new book Galacticus and Gizmo Save the Universe. The dashing hero, Captain Galacticus, had just been captured by the evil Dr Frankenstinker and things didn't look good. Mungo couldn't wait to find out what happened next, but when he turned over, the last page was missing! Who would foil Dr Frankenstinker's dastardly plan? Who would save the universe now? There was nothing for it – Mungo took a deep breath and jumped into the story . . . and his very own space odyssey! With a lot of courage and a little help from a Vroom-101 spaceship, Mungo saved the day (and the universe) and became the youngest ever member of Star Squadron.

About the Author:

Timothy Knapman is both writer and playwright and was cast adrift on a boat made of books when he was small, but finally made his way to Surrey where he now lives.

From Booklist:

This dizzying mix of space-adventure superheroics and bedtime fantasy fulfillment plays a bit with picture-book conventions. Little Mungo is given a picture book starring Captain Galacticus (a dashingly coiffed 1950s-style space hero). The story then follows the adventure contained therein, as Galacticus and his sidekick, Gizmo, run afoul of the mad (to say the least) scientist Dr. Frankenstinker and his army of enormous robot spiders. Just when things come to the thrilling climax, Mungo discovers that the last page has been ripped out. His mother suggests that he make up the rest, and sure enough, Mungo imagines himself transported into the story to help save the day. The boffo illustrations are a fun-filled splash of colorful explosions, busy mechanisms, and caterwauling cartoons, but they might be a bit too aggressive for some children’s tastes. Others, especially fans of Mini Grey’s Traction Man Is Here! (2005) and Traction Man Meets Turbodog (2008), will revel in the zany twists, mild gross-out humor, and retro-space-age histrionics bursting forth from this flight of fancy. Grades K-3. --Ian Chipman
