“It’s never too late to pick up this series.” - Booklist

She’s a girl.

She’s a space-pirate.

She’s Sardine – and she’s back!

With four Sardine books now published in the U.S., our favorite red-headed space pirate (about whom Kirkus said: “Resistance is futile” in a starred review) has a growing number of young fans. Eleanor in Brooklyn told us, “I like it that they live on a spaceship.” Toby, age seven, wrote to say: “I like all the tricks Sardine thinks up.” And Jane in California demanded “More, please!”

Now appearing in her fifth collection of ten side-splitting space adventures is Sardine, her stories told in engaging, scribbly artwork by Emmanuel Guibert.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Review in 5/1 Booklist

Ten new stories successfully show off Guibert’s intrepid heroes and nasty villains. Sardine, L’il Louis, and kindly pirate Uncle Yellow Shoulder assist a shy fellow in finding his true love, outwit

Supermuscleman and Doc Kroc when the latter attempt to turn everyone ugly with a scamcorder, investigate the unlikely discovery of a cadaver, and greet visiting cousin Manga, who hilariously reconfigures their features to resemble those in eponymous Japanese comics. Among the other bits of delightful silliness is the hiring of a punctuation-reciting schoolmaster—school being desirable as the harbinger of summer vacation. Sardine’s fans encompass a variety of age groups, and Guibert’s visualverbal textual puns will engage many; the bright, loopy renderings of a subway system and its myriad denizens, and Supermuscleman’s absurd physique, will be blissfully familiar to Sardine fans. This wonderfully wacky combination of art and text is guaranteed to enlist new devotees.

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
Sardine travels with her uncle, Captain Yellow Shoulder, a pirate who saves children from a nasty person called Supermuscleman. The book has twelve exciting chapters, each with a separate adventure where the heroes battle the villains and come away victors. The first place they land is the dark side of the moon where the inhabitants are too shy to come out of their homes. Sardine and her uncle then find the other side of the moon, where everyone parties. What happens when the shy ruler meets the beautiful party-going President? Will they get married? Next Captain Yellow Shoulder and Sardine go on to a place where a Scamcorder zaps people and makes them hairy with pimples and big ears. Just when you think it cannot get any worse, the travelers continue on to find a school master to teach them punctuation. They get on a rocket to take them on vacation, but it takes them to jail, and after that, they have to solve a murder in space. I am out of breath and that was just the first half of the book! The lovable tiny Sardine usually ends up saving the day in the adventures. Children will appreciate the graphic form of the book and will share it with their friends, and together will laugh at some of the outrageous situations. Vocabulary like "go cool your heels," "whippersnappers," "atrocious," and "la poo poo" add to the entertainment. Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs
