In this first instalment of what promises to be a much-loved series, eleven-year-old Thabo’s parents announce that the family is moving … to Mars. Written in the format of log book entries, Thabo, the Space Dude chronicles poor Thabo’s last days on Earth, as he prepares himself for the daunting adventure of space travel and leaving his friends (and the girl he has his eye on) forever. As the countdown to lift-off grows ever nearer, this coming-of-age tale follows Thabo through the ups and downs of the tween years – getting into mischief with his best friends, dealing with nagging parents, besting the bully at school, and thinking up increasingly creative attempts to catch the girl of his dreams, Mbali’s, eye. In between all these very relatable events, Thabo also faces the unique challenges of attending Mars training camp and dealing with the sudden attention he receives as a soon-to-be Martian, and the reader gets to join Thabo in this exciting, scary, life-changing time. His log book entries are interspersed with comic-strip style illustrations by the talented Lindsey Cumming, bringing life to Thabo and his shenanigans on his last days on Earth.
