When Tony Spears presses a button hidden in a cupboard he's transported from his kitchen to the flight deck of an invincible spaceship. Created by the award-winning author and illustrator Neal Layton.
Perfect for every child who has ever dreamed of travelling to space...
Making new friends is never easy, but seems impossible when Tony moves to a new town and school mid-term. But when he finds a round red button hidden in a cupboard, all his worries are forgotten. The button transforms his dull kitchen into a spaceship, called The Invincible. There's nothing more exciting than cruising the universe for adventure, but what about school and his mum?
Tony Spears' epic-galactic-space-adventures and his earthly life begin to converge. The universe is in danger, 'Sports Morning' is looming at school and Tony's mum won't have a messy kitchen!
Will Tony find a way to save the universe, and also deal with the difficulties in his 'real' life?
