Now he's on the run, racing through space, searching for answers. In a galaxy at war, where Humans and Aliens are deadly enemies, the only people who can help him are an Alien starship crew - and an Alien warrior girl, with neon needles in her hair . . .

Brilliant . . . a total pageturner. . . gloriously produced * Jacqueline Wilson *
Completely absorbing . . . The book is beautiful - lavishly illustrated by Dave McKean, with words and pictures working seamlessly together. -- Julia Eccleshare * Guardian *
This is fabulous, high-octane stuff, with an uplifting ending, stunningly illustrated by the brilliant McKean -- Sally Morris * Daily Mail *

A big (and big-hearted) story . . . Said's child-centred, inclusive text and McKean's gorgeous images combine to produce a story that will encourage young imaginations to take flight. The final sequence, in particular, is both stunning and uplifting. -- Linda Buckley-Archer * Guardian *
