Great illustrations and stories not too long as to become boring to
the child. Jack has started to read fairly well and the pictures encouraged him
to take an interest enjoy the story. The
illustrations were superb and described the story perfectly for the reader and
the children. They helped to hold the Childrens
interest. The book on the whole was read to the children but they both enjoyed
it. They found the story very easy to follow and were quite excited at times to
know what was coming next. A very easy book to read or be read for a child. The
characters in the book were very believable and easy to relate to. The children could easily pretend they were
one of the characters as they all had an individual personality. Would
definitely purchase as I particularly liked that there were three different
stories in the book. I would recommend. I
have also passed the book to my grandson’s school for the younger children to
enjoy. Imaginative and exciting with
lessons to learn in each story. Maria

The book gave a good first impression with lively, colourful
illustrations on the front and back cover. The description on the back cover
makes the story sound exciting and invites the reader to come on adventures
with Spacey Stacey and her friends. Zac loved the look of this book, the
characters looked friendly and he loves anything to do with rockets and space! The
short introduction to each character at the start and the explanation of the
planet really helped set the scene and made him want to read on and find out
what they were going to get up to! Zac loved the illustrations on the cover as
they looked bright and exciting. Inside the book there were plenty of sketches
to compliment the story which Zac really enjoyed looking at. Zac really enjoyed
reading the book. It was good that the book was split into three separate
stories, so it could be read in stages. He liked the funny names and the idea
of the 5 different planets. It genuinely made him laugh and he enjoyed reading
all the onomatopoeic description. Zac really loved the book. He found it easy to
understand and was able to really get into each story. It really kept his
attention and he found it a real page turner! Rockets, robots and jelly, what’s
not to like?! This book is very stimulating and really captured Zac’s
imagination, he didn’t want to put it down! This is a great book, both for
reading aloud to younger children and for older children to read alone. The
story has wonderful description and plenty of humour along with fun and
endearing characters. I would definitely
consider buying this product and hope there will be more by this author. This
is a great book and I am sure it would be enjoyed by boys and girls alike, I
would definitely recommend it to family and friends. A brilliant book. This book was a great read, thoroughly
enjoyed by adults and kids alike! Nicola Edge – Zachary, Joshua & Caleb – 5

Looked a good
quality book and loved the front cover, very appealing and Martina wanted to
read it straight away. Martina loved
this book and the illustrations helped her understand the book and get to know
all the characters. The illustrations
were great and really helped to tell the story and make it exciting to
read. We read this book together and
loved the fact it had 3 different stories so each story was ideal length for my
daughter to enjoy and understand. So
much going on in this book with the 3 stories and Martina enjoyed all the
stories and loved the space theme, robots, and lots more, certainly kept her
entertained. A well written book and
certainly stimulated Martina’s imagination. This is an ideal book for
children. Not only did my daughter love
it her younger brothers also enjoyed listening to the story being read out loud
and were drawn to the great illustrations.
We loved this book so would certainly purchase and will be getting one
for my nephew as a present. Have already
been recommending. A fantastic book,
superb stories, well written and loved by all. Janet Smith – Martina 5 years
