Come on! How hard could it be to find a replacement for the moon? Just head into space with a “Moon Detector” and it should be easy, surely? Well, maybe not for our heroes. They are after all dogs and prone to, well, shall we say, ‘little’ accidents. For example, knocking the spaceship off course; heading directly into the sun, being attacked by aliens… being scared to death of traveling in space…
And there’s a more.
Down on planet Earth things are going well either. Speed Bump Charlie, our wicked genius, has hatched a plot so extreme and so heinous it cannot be recorded here. If you have read the other books in this series you’ll know that he does not like dogs. They spoil his freedom chasing him up trees, they get far too much attention from their owners and worse, they leave slobber in his food bowl. This time, though, Speed Bump Charlie and his side kick, Furball, think they can rid the world of dogs forever!
Can Astro and the gang really find a replacement for the moon? Can Speed Bump Charlie use his ingenious device to lure every dog in the world to their doom? And can, Alfie really ‘blow’ the spaceship back on course.
Your mission, if you chose to accept it, is to find out!
This is the 8th book in the Series of Astro’s adventure. Although I haven’t read the previous 7, this is an amazing book in itself. Astro and his gang has to go to space to find a replacement for the Moon. At the same time, on earth, Speed Bump Charlie and his new side kick, Furball are all set to destroy all the dogs of the world. But bringing a replacement for the Moon is not easy. And so is getting rid of all the dogs in the world. Who manages to accomplish their mission and who does not?
Astro and his gang are amazing. I have always loved dogs and this book just falls right in the my list of loved books. The cute illustrations in between and the the way the story goes, the language and the way the characters are built, the typical Cat and Dog animosity and the idea of the story overall is really beautiful and artistically prepared.
The book is for a bit older kids who can read themselves. There is no doubt that it will be adored by every one who reads it
