    DescriptionThe red-headed space heroine is back! This time, the evil Supermuscleman has developed a device for controlling children--a brainwashing machine! It's up to Sardine, Little Louie, and Captain Yellow Shoulder to keep him from using it. This installment of six more stories is filled with even more strange creatures--including a space Santa Claus, pesky flies that plant annoying music in their victim's ears, intergalactic yogurt thieves, and little monster carpet salesmen who live on a fully-carpeted comet. The outrageous adventures of Sardine continue in these spirited, boisterous, and gently satirical tales.

    Author Information
    Emmanuel Guibert and Joann Sfar are two of the most talent comics authors to come from France. Prolific, inventive, and versatile beyond common sense, the two shared a Paris studio from 1995 and 1999, where stories--including this one--grew like ragweed. Taking turns writing scripts and drawing pictures, Joann and Emmanuel have collaborated on a number of prize-winning graphic novels, such as "The Professor's Daughter," the "Black Olives" series, and now "Sardine in Outer Space." Working solo, Sfar is the author of the popular "Little Vampire" and "Vampire Loves" series, as well as the bestselling "The Rabbi's Cat." As for Guibert, his many works for readers young and old include "Alan's War," an extraordinary biography of his late from Alan Cope, an American WWII veteran.
    Review quote
    “The impish graphic novel protagonists Sardine and her uncle Yellow Shoulder return in 12 enjoyable, nutty tales of the fun-loving space pirates versus the slow-witted galactic dictator Supermuscleman. . . . The book [has] an illicit, forbidden-fruit appeal that some young readers will find irresistible. . . . On proud display here is the idea that children are our last line of defense against a world that is increasingly bound by stiff guidelines and unnecessary rules.”—"Booklist" “. . . will keep the younger audiences . . . chortling.”—"Kirkus Reviews"
