Astro’s Adventures: A Christmas Calamity by Susan Day
Who wouldn’t want a robot that looked exactly like they did? How much fun would it be to go on adventures saving dogs with your robot double? Can we really blame Astro for ruining Christmas then?
Well, yes, actually. Astro thinks that his robot double can be reprogrammed to be good. He is sadly mistaken. After his robot double injures Santa and the reindeer it is up to our brave heroes to save Christmas. Let’s face it, driving a sleigh and giving out presents can’t be that hard surely? But what happens when the sleigh is stolen right from under their very noses? Who is swapping presents and burning Christmas angels? Who would dare to write rude things about Santa using Christmas lights?
And who will eventually save us all from this terrible Christmas Calamity?
In this fun children’s story from the Astro’s Adventures series you’ll meet a young enthusiastic Border collie named Laddie, three very cheeky ducklings and you’ll learn about some of Santa’s secret powers.
Joining the fun is our team of heroes, Commander Rocky, Stella D’oro, Alfie, Digger, Indy, Hans, Dingo and of course, Astro – our kind hearted reluctant hero. Not to mention, a guest appearance from Santa Claus himself!
All are part of a team who work for a mysterious organisation. This organisation exists without detection and operates right under our very noses. Its sole purpose is to save dogs from neglect and to save each other too!
If you and your family love dogs you are going to love this fun children’s story. The characters are all based on real dogs and cats and, just like your pet at home, they will warm your heart. They are unique and a bit flawed but you’ll love them all the same.
