About the Author:

Timothy Knapman lives in England.

Adam Stower lives in Brighton, England.

From Booklist:

This dizzying mix of space-adventure superheroics and bedtime fantasy fulfillment plays a bit with picture-book conventions. Little Mungo is given a picture book starring Captain Galacticus (a dashingly coiffed 1950s-style space hero). The story then follows the adventure contained therein, as Galacticus and his sidekick, Gizmo, run afoul of the mad (to say the least) scientist Dr. Frankenstinker and his army of enormous robot spiders. Just when things come to the thrilling climax, Mungo discovers that the last page has been ripped out. His mother suggests that he make up the rest, and sure enough, Mungo imagines himself transported into the story to help save the day. The boffo illustrations are a fun-filled splash of colorful explosions, busy mechanisms, and caterwauling cartoons, but they might be a bit too aggressive for some children’s tastes. Others, especially fans of Mini Grey’s Traction Man Is Here! (2005) and Traction Man Meets Turbodog (2008), will revel in the zany twists, mild gross-out humor, and retro-space-age histrionics bursting forth from this flight of fancy. Grades K-3. --Ian Chipman
