Average rating

Astra's ship is in trouble. There's something very sinister lurking in the canteen. A cakey monstrosity on the war path. And then there's the Poglites - a space salvage crew who have invaded the ship in their quest for spoonage! Astra and her robot friend Pilbeam are the only things standing in the way of the ship's destruction


My favourite character was Pilbeam! I would recommend this book to people who like Space adventures and killer cakes!

It is a fiction because aliens and the nameless horror and cakes with hands and legs and eyes don't exist. I liked the Nameless Horror because it saved Astra's ship. I think I shouldn't recommend it to someone else because it was a bit scary.

great fiction story, with sci-fi aspects. this author was introduced to me by my younger sibling who previously studied "pugs of the frozen north" at school. Would recommend for ages 7+
