Review

“Space Dog by Mini Grey is an anarchic, adrenalin-packed adventure of The Highest Order. Utterly and joyously playful, wildly and lavishly imaginative, this dynamic and delightful journey exploring space and friendship is sublime.” (Zoe Playing by the Book)

“Grey’s witty language, from the hilarious exclamations made by Space Dog (“Thundering milkswamps!”, “Shivering Stilton!”) to the deliciously outlandish names of rare alien life forms (the Cruets of West Cutlery, the Fruitons of Crumble Major) has had us all giggling over and over again, even on the 15th reading of Space Dog Her pacing is timed to perfection, with dramatic stretches interspersed with moments of great relief and humour, drawing readers, listeners, grown-ups, children ever more closely in to Grey’s implausible, phenomenal universe Spooniverse.” (Zoe Playing by the Book)

“Grey’s illustrations richly illuminate the world she has built to share with us, giving enormous pleasure each and every time they’re returned to.” (Zoe Playing by the Book)

“This hilarious and zany story with its weird and wonderful situations is filled with laughs – and wonderful illustrations. Great fun.” (Parents in Touch)

“Wonderful stuff! This action-packed adventure is bound to appeal to the a lot of established fans of Mini Grey and will I’m certain, win her a whole host of new ones. This is overflowing with exciting happenings, visual jokes and verbal ones; and each and every turn of the page brings implausible and frenzied features to divert and delight.” (Jill Bennett Red Reading Hub)
