In his fourth adventure, Chrujda the Badger travels to outer space in his own spaceship!

In previous books, Chrujda the Badger has made a film, built an accelerator and decelerator, and fallen in love. But perhaps, this is his greatest adventure yet! This time around he is assisted by Stáňa, the owl genius, who bears a resemblance to physicist Stephen Hawking. In the Habřinec forest, Chrujda constructs his own spaceship to travel as far as the small moon of Pidiluna. Chrujda experiences adventures with three-legged aliens and even meets his archenemy – Smradolf the Polecat. Will Chrujda safely return to the arms of his love, Anička the Weasel? Author Petr Stančík captivates children with his sense of humour, original comic language and exaggeration.

Praise

“Stančík’s text breathes fantasy, wacky ideas and playfulness.”

MF Dnes

“Stančík moves swiftly between allusions and humour. He touches on something more serious and continues straight on. Children will appreciate the fast pace and exaggeration.”
