"This is a wonderful space adventure, with superbly intricate illustrations by Karl James Mountford... It's highly imaginative and a bit different (in the very best way) and I really enjoyed it and I know space-mad children will too." -- Parents in Touch
"Little ones will love joining Jakob on his space voyage beyond the peek-through pages and hidden flaps. Powell-Tuck imbues her tale with the spirit of fun and adventure, a big helping of imagination and plenty of giggles while Mountford’s rich and intricately detailed illustrations invite us to step through the book’s cut-out cover and into a thrill-packed ride." -- Lancashire Evening Post

Powell-Tuck’s tale is a delightful trip for a child’s imagination - it brings to life the possibility of living in space and visiting different space communities. Mountford’s recognizable art is a visual delight packed with tiny humorous details, technical thingumajigs and curious lift the flap discoveries that reveal more about the inner workings of the Space Train. Powell-Tuck has written a sweet story that shows how much a granny and grandson can do, but it is toolbot and robot chicken that’s steal the show. The blastrod scene will make you both laugh and wince with delight.
