Australian author Aleesah Darlison knows how to write books kids like to read. In this latest novel she combines science fiction, space and mystery rolled into a fabulous intergalactic adventure series complete with humour and fun. The book is ideal for reluctant readers and should appeal to those aged 7+ years.

Eleven-year-old Nash lives with his mum on Earth and spends time with his estranged dad on Misty Space Station thousands of outer space kilometres away. When Nash arrives at the station, he meets new friends nicknamed the Space Kids. However, danger awaits the trio: someone is sabotaging Misty. Perhaps it’s Mr Nakimoto. Or could it be their new friend Bingo Crafter?

Darlison is a multi-published, award-winning Australian whose much-loved stories promote the concepts she explores in this latest novel: courage, friendship, and teamwork. Her story is fast-paced and compelling. Her book is illustrated with black and white pictures by Nancy Bevington who has illustrated some beautiful and award-winning books.

Space Kids Sabotage is sure to garner many fans and is highly recommended.
