Description

An elite crew has finally found the Lost Nuts of Legend. But will they get home before something happens to the nuts?

An elite crew has finally found the Lost Nuts of Legend. Now all they have to do is go home. But — oh, dear — if only it were that simple. Everyone is starving, the Star Nav is broken, the neighbors are distinctly unfriendly, and it was a really bad idea to stop at the Death Banana and ask for directions. Will the crew find their way home? And, most importantly, will they get home before something happens to the nuts?


Praise For Nuts in Space

Dolan shows no signs of slowing down as a joke machine: there are dialogue bubbles galore to giggle over, as well as visual nudges: note that the Vader-like leader of the Death Banana has a coffee mug that reads, “World’s Best Evil Overlord.”
—Publishers Weekly

Speech bubbles and background antics add gleeful side stories and diverting jokes that will get little ones poring over illustrations to find hidden details, while parents will likely appreciate the spoof on sci-fi classics. Kids who love yuks will dig this merrily manic tale.
—Booklist

Light and playful, with busy action and energetic spoofs, this silly story is a good thing.
—Kirkus Reviews

Dolan’s cartoonish drawings overflow with myriad visual jokes and speech balloons that perfectly complement the tongue-in-cheek narrative...this is veritable tour-de-farce that is sure to appeal to young fans of Star Wars, Star Trek, and general comic book silliness
