In this third book in the Space Boy trilogy, Niko and his trusty dog, Tag, blast off on another outer-space adventure, when suddenly Niko’s robot copilot is captured by a snow monster (who looks an awful lot like Niko’s annoying sister, Posh). When they reach Planet Ice, Tag is captured by the snow monster as well, leaving Niko to save them both. After defeating a killer bunny and the snow monster’s army of snowmen, Niko and his crew race back to Planet Home, just in time for cocoa.

lllustrated in comic-book style and featuring easy-to-read text packed with humor, Space Boy and the Snow Monster is both a thrilling adventure and a celebration of the power of pretend play.

Praise For…

"Space boy Niko's third rip-roaring adventure is ready for takeoff.... (the) impassioned play-by-play narrative flawlessly mimics that of kids boisterously immersed in dramatic worldbuilding. Regan's minichapters and short, exclamatory sentences sustain the escalating tension, while Neubecker's wacky illustrations augment the humor by orchestrating action shots counter to Niko's script. Each detail-packed frame energetically propels the story forward with chuckle-inducing results. Cardboard boxes and duct tape are sure to turn up missing in many a household as spaceships roar into screen-free adventures." - Kirkus Reviews

“Curtis’s energetic and very funny text (and)…Neubecker’s lively panel, full-page, and double-page digital illustrations strike the right balance…The final scene adds some drama to Niko’s happy ending…Stay vigilant, Space Boy!” – The Horn Book
