I received this book from the publishers in exchange for an honest review.

This is a cute middle-grade read and, with a name like Space Detectives, I knew I had to try it.

Our leads and Connor and Ethan, two boys spending their summer in Starville. They mention being detectives at home and are on the lookout for a mystery while serving ice cream. They finally get a case when the space station announces it is on course to crash into the moon!

The art is fun and gorgeous, really adding to the tale. T

I really enjoyed this book!

It had a great mix of characters and they were well developed and their interaction was spot on for the age range. It was an entertaining read and I liked the characters from the different planets too.

The illustrations were great and really added to the book too and helped bring it to life.

A great and fun read for little space fans out there – it is 5 stars from me for this one and I can see this being a great series! Very highl

This was a fun read but I struggled with the whole "throwing them out to space and they survive magically" it had no reason to be and could've been done better. I know that it already has some bending of space rules but this was a bit too much and just wasn't necessary, it didn't add to the value of it except raise the already high stakes for nothing. ...more

This was great fun! Space, detectives, alien creatures and brilliant illustrations? What more does one need! Loved the twist on the characters and who truly was the evil genius in the end! I would be a rubbish Space Detective! I think this would be super popular in Year 3/4!
