    1. I am a big advocate of fantasy and science fiction books for young readers, so I was pleased to have a chance to read SPACE BOY AND HIS DOG by Dian Curtis Regan. It turns out that the story takes place in the boy Niko's imagination, a la Spaceman Spiff from Calvin & Hobbes, so while it isn't sci-if per se, it is fun.Niko, his dog and his toy robot go on a mission to the moon to find a missing cat. Niko's sister Posh joins both the mission and the story, even though she is not invited, we are [...]

    2. Almost a chapter book but done in picture book format, although each 'chapter' is very short. Each 'chapter' does represent a significant change in events, so the sections are reasonable. Imaginative how the earthly play takes them all the way to the moon, but "all fly back to Planet Home for supper"It is cute to see an alien face popping up, looking at the reader. I do wonder why the missing cat has no helmet on as all the other characters do.

    3. Kind of confusing with the sister.

    4. This book is just wonderful and perfect for a boy or a girl. If you notice in the above photo, the title says SPACE BOY AND HIS SISTER DOG. The sister, Posh, makes an appearance in this novel and will make both boys and girls relate to having a sibling.Niko has made a spaceship out of a box and is always looking for an adventure to take his dog, Tag and robot, Radar on. His sister is not invited on these adventures though. While looking for an adventure, Niko notices a sign that says "Lost Cat" [...]

    5. Quite dull. Yes the spaceship, outerspace, alien, annoying sister are all fun items for kids, but these elements were not really put together well enough to enjoy. I read this aloud to 9 different classes of 1st thru 3rd graders and the "surprise ending??" didn't hit the mark.

    6. SUPER cute. I loved how it was split up into seven "episodes" or parts of the story.

    7. Posh isn't part of this story! A little boy and his big imagination. My favorite thing about this is definitely the illustrations.

    8. Full review at: unleashingreaders/?p=6901Niko is the captain of a spaceship he built himself. His dog is his copilot. He zips around space and even goes on missions. One thing this book is definitely not about is Niko's sister Posh. Except, well, it is pretty much all about Niko's sister.Regan and Neubecker do a great job in this picture book making Niko’s story come to life. It is a fun story with elaborate, bright full-page illustrations. I also like that it is a chapter picture book. It seq [...]

    9. Show the book and read the title to the group. Tell them the name of the author and illustrator. Ask what genre they think this story will be and what they see on the cover to help them decide. See if anyone notices the crossed out word in the title (Sister), and if not, point out how surprised you were to see it when you picked up the book, since it isn't listed in the computer that way. Tell them that the crossed out word makes you wonder if the Space Boy's sister is going to be part of the pr [...]

    11. Niko and his dog travel to the moon in his spaceship, and make it home in time for dinner. This book is a GREAT story of imagination. I have to thank Teaching Books and Boyds Mills Press for my copy. I entered the give-away for this book and won one of the copies! It was a joy to find it in my mailbox.

    12. I loved the colorful and energetic illustrations by Robert Neubecker and the author (Dian Curtis Regan) injected some wonderful humor, playing with the concept of the nosey sister who wants to get in on the story. Very clever. I liked the layout of the book, too, partial picture book and partial comic book style. I can see other adventures with this imaginative Space Boy. Fun!

    13. Space boy covers all the favorite interests of young readers and listeners, space,dogs,robots and even annoying little sisters. The surprise ending is a delightful touch. This will be a great read-aloud for very young children. The colorful illustrations in a graphic novel type format are appealing.

    14. This picture book is divided into 8 chapters of 2-4 pages long. Imaginative play of flying to the moon is the basis of the story. It feels disjointed, perhaps because of the chapters. It might be a way to teach the idea of chapters and chapter titles during a read aloud.

    15. Cute, but somehow I expected more out of the delightful premise. Much of the humor consists of repetitions of a single gag, which is that his sister isn't supposed to be part of the story. I didn't really care for the resolution, as presented, but I loved the dog and the little robot.

    16. I liked this one, although I felt there was a dichotomy between the level of language and sophistication of the illustration and story format. For that reason, I think this would be better one on one/two than in a group setting.

    17. Story about imagination and boy building a spaceship to go to the moon with his dog and Radar robot. And then his sister tries to help find a missing cat on the moon and they all zoom back to planet Home.

    18. Fun, though Niko proved himself to be a bit of a bratty brother and the book doesn't take a moment to address it. Instead, the book has this sort of meta, Jacob's Ladder style twist of an ending that's kind of mind blowing if you think about it for awhile.

    21. This was such a cute story about imagination, play, and sibling rivalry. I really enjoyed Posh's character (who is not in this story) =P

    22. "Tag does not feel sad at all. He did not want to find the cat. He just wanted to run and bark all over the moon."

    23. An imaginative outer space adventure in a homemade spaceship.

    24. This book is fabulous. Stirs the imagination and is funny. My 3 1/2 boy loves space and dogs, he also thought leaving the boys sister on the moon was hysterical

    26. I LOVED THIS BOOK! Both the art and the text are full of fun and energy. For me, this may be the best children's book of the year.

    27. This fun picture book would be a great kick off a unit on space! It is a fun one to read with kids.

    28. This story's got a really great voice, and it's funny, too. Plus, NEUBECKER- ONE OF MY FAVORITES!

    29. This is a story about Niko and his dog, Tag, who go into outer space to look for Mrs. Jarabaldi's lost cat. But it is definitely NOT a story about Niko's sister, Posh.
