Kidnapped by a space dragon! Can Stan save the universe?
@monsterbooksraw #spacedragons @rararesorces
"The whole universe: every planet, star, black hole and life form started with a single atom exploding into a great void of nothing...........Right after that, came the Dragons."
If Stan Pollux had known he would be spending his summer holidays in the outer reaches of our solar system, he would have put on different underpants.
But when he gets kidnapped by the Planet Dragon Mercury, most things suddenly seem small and insignificant. Stan finds himself in a universe of dragons who had once ruled the skies as gods: Mars, Venus, Saturn and even Uranus way out back. This is shaping up to be the best summer holiday in the history of the cosmos until Stan discovers his stupid sister is missing and that Pluto (AKA Hades) is trying to use her to destroy the Solar System. And it will be all Stan’s fault if he doesn’t get Poppy back.
So, all Stan has to do is learn how to fight like a hero in space armour, defeat the dragon god of the Underworld, Hades, rescue his sister and save the world. All before his parents realise she is missing.
Firstly i have to say this is a beautifully presented book and my son aged 10 really thought it was something special with the thick hard back the fantastic art work and the lovely medallion on the spine!
This story is fabulous a wonderful mix of fantasy and the hint of Greek mythology.
One night Stan's sister knocks over his telescope he is sure it is broken but when he looks through it he sees an eye looking back at him!
The next night there is a Gray dragon waiting for him in his back yard! Here the adventure begins taking Stan to the far reaches of space and fighting to save the universe and rescue his sister!
You cannot go wrong with space and dragons with young kids at the moment add some sibling relate-able drama and you are on to a winner.
There are truly some laugh out loud moment in this book the humour was brilliant, so much so I was quoting bits to my husband 'It was the sort of summer's day that you only get once or twice a year in England.' brilliant!! Ben Ten underpants!!
I cannot wait for this book to be released because as I said before is is not only such a fantastic story the book its self is crafted so nicely that it feels like something special and I will be buying a few as gifts!!
