Scholastic, 2017. ISBN 9781760279479
(Age: 7-10) Highly recommended. Another in the fun graphic novel series by Blabey will be greeted with glee by fans who will laugh out loud at the latest adventure of the strange gang led by Mr Wolf. The bad news is that the world is ending, but the Bad Guys, hoping to become heroes, steal a rocket and fly off to the moon in search of the evil Dr Marmalade and his Cute-Zilla Ray. Mr Piranha might have eaten too many beans with disastrous results when Mr Wolf finds him in the space suit that he is wearing. But only the Bad Guys could come up with a solution to save the world that involves giant farts!
Children love this hilarious series and Intergalactic Gas will be another tale for them to enjoy. The humour is over the top and will raise the spirits of any child who reads the story while the illustrations add to the delicious fun. The text is short enough to encourage the newly independent reader to start the story, while bold print and funny illustrations keep the reader involved. The characters are as lively as ever, and this time Mr Wolf shows that he knows how to keep his friends when he forgives Mr Snake for shutting him out of the spaceship.
Great fun for all readers. Aaron Blabey presents a short introduction here.
