A Christmas book for the whole family from Astro’s Adventures
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!
What to the reviews say?
When people begin unwrapping the wrong presents at Christmas, you know it’s going to be a huge calamity. Fortunately, Astro is on the case and his friends are stockpiling cookies and milk. A robot and a cat are almost too much for Santa but this story has teamwork on its side. Go Laddie! Your kids will like the drawings and the twist at the end means they have to read more from this author! – Eva Gaal
I started this series when book seven came up on special and after reading it, I knew I had to read the rest. While I have finally done so and I am not disappointed. This entire series makes a great collection to any young reader, or reader young at heart. A great chapter book for those in lower to middle elementary school. – Nicole
