Space Dog Reviews
My 4 year old LOVES this book. We always had it checked out from the library, so we decided to order our own copy. We've read this dozens of times. It's rarely put away on the book shelf, always left out in the "read now" stack.
Great book, can't wait until my grandson gets it for x- mas....I loved it...
This book is very cool and my daughter really enjoyed the story. Thank you!
Being a Space Dog is hard work, especially in a busy, animated, anthropomorphic food "Spooniverse." Our hero wants to go home, but gets wrapped up solving the Spooniverse’s problems along the way. I love how this character challenges himself to veer away from his normal routine and explore unchartered territory. Themes of taking risks, friendship, and teamwork are present. With that combination, anything is possible. The cartoonish illustrations are worthy of a television series. The commercialism is appealing and the reader will have to stop and take in every little detail to fully experience the art. With so much going on, the pacing tends to come to a halt at certain points to allow for this exploration. But, there is no shortage of entertainment in this story, and every reader will have something to enjoy. Space Dog is sure to be a fun read aloud, especially for laps.
Mini Grey is one of our favorite kids' authors and artists, and she nails it with this very British scifi picture book. The style is vintage radio drama, the protagonists are cute animals, and the message is inter-species harmony. What more could you need? Once you've read the story, double back and look closely at the newspaper backgrounds in the introduction to our characters - and don't miss the end papers, of course.
My 21 month old adores this book. She balances like astrocat, users her nimble fingers like moustronaut, and talks about space dogs rocket ship. A creative story about friendship with multiple adventures in the "dairy quadrant". It's like space opera for kids. Love it!
