Space Station Rat

by Michael J. Daley

There’s not much true science fiction available for the intermediate grades, so we were delighted to find this terrific outer space adventure. Though it is humorous and exciting, it takes its science quite seriously, as any good SF novel should.

This is a solo read, provided by our own Dan Bostick, who was named one of the five best voices in Children’s Audio last year by AudioFile Magazine.

“Daniel Bostick’s excellent narration perfectly captures the essence of each character and will enthrall listeners.”
School Library Journal August, 2010

“Narrator Daniel Bostick, a passionate stage performer, studied acting in NYC and in England, and was a student of famed British actress Rosemary Harris. Here he does a great job giving each character a distinct voice. His excellent narration, the fast-moving plot, and relatable characters make this an enjoyable audiobook that will keep kids engaged.”
SoundCommentary October, 2010

“Daniel Bostick, who produces many of Bruce Coville’s stellar productions, rightly gives Rat a reasonable voice while Jeff has a combination of adolescent whine and boyish enthusiasm….This is the most appealing rat to appear in public since Disney’s “Ratatouille.” Young listeners will want (I can’t believe I’m saying this) rats of their own by the time a meteor shower threatens rodent and boy alike.”
