"A writer of genuine originality" The Guardian

Space Oddity

Science and laughs combine in this out-of-this-world adventure!

You might think that this story is going to be an intergalactic adventure filled with UFOs, black holes, killer robots and some very foul-smelling aliens.

And you'd be right.

But it's mostly about a boy called Jake, his embarrassing dad, and the mind-boggling question ... are we really alone in the universe? 

Shortlisted for the Leicester Libraries Our Best Book Award.

Illustrated by Ben Mantle

A bright, brainy book ... spiced with a good pinch of humour and lashings of emotional intelligence

The Times, Children's Book of the Week

A hilarious story ... a perfect read for children and parents to share ... it reads like a quiet classic.


Christopher Edge’s spry, entertaining novel draws inspiration from the Bowie track that gives it its title

Financial Times

If you like your science with a dose of laughter, then this rollicking space adventure is for you.

The Week Junior

Edge's highly original middle-grade books combine science and thrills; now he throws comedy into the mix in a space adventure for slightly younger readers.

The Bookseller

Very funny with a heart the size of a planet
