Algy’s Amazing Adventures in Space is one of the latest books from the Orion Early Reader series. It is a red Early Reader which means it is perfect for those who are to read by themselves or to a listening adult. Miss M is 6 and a fairly confident reader so this is perfect for her to sit down and enjoy.
This book follows the adventures that a young boy Algy has when he visits the shed at the end of his garden. Behind a loose plank always lies an amazing adventure which he visits with the girl next door and her little brother. In this book they find themselves in space on another planet where they find a little tin dog who leads them to a crater where the dog’s owner GUS, a robot has fallen. Algy and his friend’s adventure follows their journey rescuing GUS from the hole and then learning a bit more about the planet such as the strange plants that are grown. They soon decide to return home through the shed after learning that the masters of the planet are due to return and they are aliens!!
This Orion Early Reader is a fun read, one that all children will enjoy. Miss M found it exciting and eager to read what happened next which is great to motivate her to finish the book. The book is full of colour illustrations on each page too which keep a child’s interest, Miss M always like to stop and look at the pictures before continuing to read.
We love the Early Reader series from Orion and think Algy’s Amazing Adventures in Space fit in really well, definitely something all young readers will enjoy.
