Spacejackers 3: The Pirate King (Bloomsbury - January 2017).
Teenage tearaway, Jake Cutler, returns in The Pirate King to search for his father and save his friends. The galaxy is at war and Jake is right at the heart of it. He must lead the independent colonies into battle, but will anyone trust to a spacejacker? Jake has to prove himself as a leader, so he can take down the corrupt Interstellar Government once and for all.
“Huw was very well prepared, incredibly enthusiastic and he gave an interactive and engaging session each time. I would not hesitate to recommend Huw for other school events.”
“His event was engaging and contained the right amount of reading, audience participation and some fantastic drawing.”
“The children enjoyed the talk very much and Huw was friendly and inspiring.”
