Space Hoppers

Hilarious new science fiction to inspire your reluctant readers

In the year 2281 it was finally agreed that adults were to blame for everything wrong in the Solar System - from uninspired TV scheduling to global warming - and so governments around the world agreed to enforce retirement at the age of 18. The kids now rule the universe!

Space Hoppers Dan Fireball and Astra Moon

Nine exciting adventures follow Space Hopper agents Dan Fireball and Astra Moon as they patrol the universe, fighting crimes and chasing the Solar System's most notorious villain.
