Even cleaning up is an adventure when Sardine comes to town! Roaming through the galaxy with her space-faring friends, Sardine’s always up for vexing vile villainy and thwarting terrible tyranny -- leaving a little time for baking and bedtime stories, of course!
Ten of Sardine’s wacky and wonderful adventures are told in simple, scribbly artwork in this sixth volume of the Sardine in Outer Space series by Emmanuel Guibert.
Review in Booklist
Piratical guardian Captain Yellow Shoulder and kids Sardine and Little Louie are back for nine more sweetly silly adventures. This time, Guibert gives the nod to a variety of pop-culture icons, including the cell phone, moon pies, and Dav Pilkey’s Captain Underpants series. The bouncy cartoons, wacky but well plotted vignettes, and glowing color palette promise to reel in new readers and satisfy young fans. Reading
Sardine is about as close as American kids can get to sharing the experience of their French counterparts, who have greater access to such age-appropriate comics. Guibert again provides a satisfying dose of that other world. — Francisca Goldsmith
