Thrown into a bouncing, flying, racing, falling, but fabulously fun adventure, Ruth does everything she can to keep her first real friend (besides Yuri) safe. David Walliams, the mastermind behind numerous beloved children's books, takes young readers on an intergalactic journey with his latest masterpiece, "Spaceboy. Spaceboy is the hilarious new David Walliams book set during the 1960's space race - due for release in September 2022.

An alien on earth is news and the Spaceboy even makes it to The White House to meet a rotund President with an orange face who may or may not seem familiar to many readers. Not only did Adam Stower’s illustrations perfectly complimented the story they helped to elevate this book to a whole new level.

Ruth loves to look up into the stars at night, imagining shooting up into space in a rocket like her idol, Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. But when a UFO crash-lands in a cornfield near her home, Ruth is suddenly launched into a supersonic adventure full of mystery and surprises… and a secret that could change the course of history!

Lots of toilet humour, bottoms, trumps etc which Walliams relies on for humour over smart dialogue or a clever plot, quite the opposite to his hero Roald Dahl's approach. He has gone on to take the children’s literary world by storm, dominating sales charts and twice winning the National Book Awards Children’s Book of the Year. As always, Walliams’ text, in combination with illustrations by Adam Stower, is both heartwarming and hilarious, perfect reading material for readers of eight years and older.

A thrill a minute book, Spaceboy is filled with chases – each one of which is different and shows the stretch of Walliam’s imagination. The book is a chapter book but it is equally also a picture book as half of the content is illustrative. Ruth sees a spacecraft crashing down to the ground not far from her home so she sneaks out to investigate, where she meets, her soon to be new Friend, Spaceboy.

This one did have Roald Dahl vibes with the orphaned children and nasty relatives, and of course we have the token bad guy. Schock, a half-human-half-robot scientist who used to build rockets for the Führer and was offered a deal by the Americans after the war: he would not go to trial if he worked on the US space programme. Throw in an “alien” (my daughter saw through that plot line on the first page) child escapes and causes havoc and revenge is had on said horrible adult. i love your characters your my favourite author i have read gangster granny, billionare boy, the midnight gang , bad dad, and demon dentist.

He took up swimming in his youth because he was overweight, and has subsequently completed long distance swims of the English Channel, the Strait of Gibraltar and the River Thames, raising millions of pounds for charity!Sometimes I wonder if the humor is as clear to children as adults, but I certaiinly cracked up with all the jabs/exaggerated characteristics of america (and the president). His tenth novel, BAD DAD, was an immediate number one, following the triumph of THE MIDNIGHT GANG, the biggest-selling children’s book of 2016. I liked Yuri and Ruth and feel like this book has potential for sequels of adventures and even prequels of Spaceboy and Ruth's lives prior to them meeting.
