Review: Space Band

Imagine you’re in a band. You rock it hard with your pals, doing everything you can to be the best band in the world. But rocking is hard, and it takes sooooo much practice.

Still, you never give up. And when the chance comes to play in a comp that could win you tickets to the best rock concert of all time, you jump on it.

Except…. right before you’re about to play, you’re beamed into space to join the best band in the universe competition. A dream come true? Maybe. Except… there are some weird conditions for this rock competition, and they might mean never getting to go home again.

Join George, Bash and Neila in this musical space adventure as they rock is out against aliens from across the universe. There’s non-stop action, bucket-loads of danger and twist upon twist, that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Tom Fletcher, author of The Creakers and The Danger Gang, puts the rock in rock band in this one. It’s light-hearted and fun. It’s entertaining. It’s addictive.

And as an added bonus, there is a QR code to scan for each of the band’s songs, so you can experience the rocking yourself, delivered by Fletcher’s own band McFly.

This is a great junior fiction/middle grade book for kids who love an easy fun-filled read. With loads of illustrations peppered throughout and an engaging layout, it’s more than words on the page.

With action-packed fun with twists you won’t see coming, Space Band will rock your socks off!
