Description

The brilliantly funny and final book in the SAM WU series, starring the bravest scaredy-cat in the world! Perfect for reluctant readers and fans of STEM, Tom Fletcher, Pamela Butchart and Sam Copeland's CHARLIE CHANGES INTO A CHICKEN and from the author pair behind new middle grade fantasy DRAGON MOUNTAIN.




Sam Wu is not afraid of many things. Definitely not ghosts, sharks, the dark, spiders or EVEN zombies! But space, well ...


When Sam gets the chance to go to Space Camp with his friends this summer, he has never been more excited. He is desperate for everyone to love it as much as he does - and together win the Space Camp Challenge trophy!


But not everybody at Space Camp is ready to be a team player and for Sam it's starting to look like winning the trophy might be as difficult as landing on the moon!


A wonderfully funny and reassuring read for every child staying away from home for the very first time.



Common childhood fears dealt with in a hilarious, sensitive and accessible way.

Review quote

Illustrated fiction is still having something of a boom, but if you're looking for a non-white protagonist it's slim pickings indeed. Happily Sam Wu is about to change all that. A hero of Asian heritage with a diverse set of friends . . . it's enormous fun, madcap and relatable.', Bookseller
