Space Pirate Sardine vs. the Brainwashing Machine

Emmanuel Guibert; Illustrated by Joann Sfar

Square Fish

The red-headed space heroine is back! This time, the evil Supermuscleman has developed a device for controlling children—a brainwashing machine! It’s up to Sardine, Little Louie, and Captain Yellow Shoulder to keep him from using it. This installment of six more stories is filled with even more strange creatures—including a space Santa Claus, pesky flies that plant annoying music in their victim’s ears, intergalactic yogurt thieves, and little monster carpet salesmen who live on a fully-carpeted comet. The outrageous adventures of Sardine continue in these spirited, boisterous, and gently satirical tales.

REVIEWS

Praise for Space Pirate Sardine vs. the Brainwashing Machine

“The impish graphic novel protagonists Sardine and her uncle Yellow Shoulder return in 12 enjoyable, nutty tales of the fun-loving space pirates versus the slow-witted galactic dictator Supermuscleman. . . . The book [has] an illicit, forbidden-fruit appeal that some young readers will find irresistible. . . . On proud display here is the idea that children are our last line of defense against a world that is increasingly bound by stiff guidelines and unnecessary rules.”—Booklist
 
“. . . will keep the younger audiences . . . chortling.”—Kirkus Reviews
