Niko built his very own space ship. He blasts off on an important mission in outer space with Radar, his toy robot, and his trusty dog, Tag . . .
. . . plus a sneaky stowaway--a stowaway who is SO NOT SUPPOSED to be in Niko's story.
School Library Journal: "A good read-aloud to highlight strong female characters and discuss sibling rivalries."
Kirkus Review: "The themes of imaginary play and sibling rivalry provide good-natured support for a lighthearted, easy-to-read adventure."
Publishers Weekly: "Regan takes readers inside the head of a very imaginative child, honoring Niko's desire to control his story while affectionately spoofing it. It's a funny and fresh spin on sibling conflict that offers some downright philosophical musings on the notion of authorial autonomy. We may be able to imagine any story, but can we ever claim sole ownership? Don't our characters get a say, too?"
Horn Book: "Filled with kid-pleasing details. The expressive art works in concert with Regan's tongue-in-cheek text, enriching the story and helping make its sophisticated structure easy to follow."
