"Card works both pathos and humor into this tale of a family pulling together to rescue one of their own."Publishers Weekly

"Space Boy offers readers that perennial delight, space travel without the hardware. Card writes with a deceptively simple clarity here, the kind of smart science-fiction fairy tale that is exciting and rewarding for anyone who wants to wrap their brain around the present clothed as the near-future."Trashotron.com

Is it space travel that children dream of, or merely visiting other worlds? Todd had always set his heart on being an astronaut, but when he meets an alien and travels to another world, he doesn't use a spaceship; he just hangs out in his own back yard.

In Space Boy, Orson Scott Card, author of Ender's Game, takes listeners into a strange and wonderful future, where people from another world regularly visit Earth, usually without being noticed. And when humans travel to their world, they find themselves dangerously weak and powerless, until Todd finds a way to set both worlds to rights.

By turns funny and painful, Space Boy is Card at his best, exploring human nature for the entertainment of readers young and old.
