The Space Boy
|Limited Edition||SOLD OUT|
|Lettered Edition||SOLD OUT|
Illustrated by Lance Card
Is it space that children dream of, or merely visiting other worlds? Todd had always set his heart on being an astronaut, but when he meets an alien and travels to another world, he doesn't use a spaceship, he just hangs out in his own back yard.
In Space Boy, Orson Scott Card, author of Ender's Game, takes readers into a strange and wonderful future, where people from another world regularly visit Earth - usually without being noticed. And when humans travel to their world, they find themselves dangerously weak and powerless. Until Todd finds a way to set both worlds to rights.
By turns funny and painful, Space Boy is Card at his best, exploring human nature for the entertainment of readers young and old.

From Ain't It Cool News:
“[Space Boy] reads like the kind of story you'd come up with as a kid, as the best children's stories should.”
From Publishers Weekly:
“Card works both pathos and humor into this tale of a family pulling together to rescue one of their own, producing a story more pleasing than its slight plot might suggest.”
