Space Penguins Galaxy Race - Lucy Courtenay

I usually don't review books for children this young (the book aims at children between the ages of 6 and 8) but when I read


"In space no one can hear you flap"

in combination with penguins, in SPACE I was immediately sold.


I just know I would have loved this book as a child. The story is fun and exciting, the characters remind me a bit of that other famous penguin gang - The Penguins of Madagascar.


I think it's best read as a buddy project between parent and child, as I think the words might be a bit too difficult for even an 8-year-old (but, I'm hardly an expert on the subject as I didn't know any English when I was eight), although there is a glossary for some of the words and also discussion questions. The illustrations really make this book even nicer. I'm a bit older than suggested, but still had a great time reading it. I'll definitely keep this book in mind when looking for a present for a kid.


Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
