LARKLIGHT, by Philip Reeve

A rousing tale of dauntless pluck in the farthest reaches of space!

A rousing tale of dauntless pluck in the farthest reaches of space!

It’s 1851 and Britain has colonized…the universe!  Art and his sister live an uncomplicated life until space spiders the size of elephants attack their home and then they’re off!  It’s hard to categorize this book – it’s funny, it has pirates and political satire and space ships too!  (If you like this one, you can find the sequels, STARCROSS and MOTHSTORM, at Wester Library too.)
