Looking for some inspiration for your Summer Stars Reading Adventure? Open up a door to alternate universes for your child by recommending one of our special Summer Stars Sci-Fi books! Copies of all three books will be in all Dublin City Libraries in the coming days.

Tin by Padraig Kenny. ISBN 9781911077657.
Christopher is a ‘Proper’, a real boy, with a real soul who works with an engineer that makes mechanical children. An accident turns his world upside-down and reveals a secret that puts him in grave danger. A robot adventure story with real heart, that asks us what it truly means to be human.

Bumpfizzle the Best on Planet Earth by Patricia Forde. ISBN 9781912417032.
Bumpfizzle is an alien, sent to Earth from Planet Plonk on a research mission. Or is he really just a ten-year-old boy who is feeling a bit disgruntled at all the attention his parents are lavishing on The Baby? A hilarious and highly imaginative book, beautifully illustrated by Elina Braslina.

The Wild Robot by Peter Brown. ISBN 9781848127272.
The Wild Robot

This charming book features Roz, a friendly robot that has been shipwrecked on a seemingly deserted island. However, the island isn’t as deserted as it first appeared to be. Having initially frightened the animals on the island, she slowly gains their trust and friendship, learning important lessons along the way. A thought-proving book about harmony between technology and nature.
