Publisher's Summary

"Like crack for my eyeballs!" (Amazon reviewer)

While trying to stop a cyber-attacker stealing all Space Team's hard-earned money, the cyborg, Mech, unlocks a secret partition in his hard drive, revealing a mysterious set of coordinates. 

The co-ordinates lead the team to Funworld, a planet-sized theme park with a worrying number of artificially intelligent clownbots, and a shocking disregard for Health & Safety. 

With no weapons, and a shapeshifter who can no longer shift-shape, Space Team's quest to unlock Funworld's mysteries leads them deep into the planet's core - and to the horrors that inhabit it - where they uncover the shocking secret Mech had no idea he was keeping. 

Featuring space clowns, the second-last human alive, and at least one fleeting reference to Scooby Doo, Space Team: Planet of the Japes is the seventh hilarious book in the internationally best-selling Space Team series.

Good ol' Space Team

I was so incredibly impressed by the last Space Team book that I was afraid that Planet of the Japes would be a let down. But I really liked it! I found it fun to get back to the Space Team formula. The book has a couple of curve balls that surprised me and I found the whole thing fun throughout.

In every review of Space Team, I praise the great work done by Phil Thron. He maintains that high level of performance here.

Spaceteam has been nothing but enjoyable just like every book in this series so far! the constant antics of the crew make me almost feel like they are a real team in space! Can't wait to listen to all the others in the series countless times.

This isn't a good book

It's a good SPACE book.

Anyway, Phil Thron delivers another amazing performance where he really brings the Space Team members to life, enhancing an already fun story. I can't wait for the next one!

Fonkin’ Clowns

The excellence of juvenile and sarcastic wit continues... Laughed out loud and often... Whimsy of GotG, the silliness of Airplane, slapstick of Red Dwarf... Love the way the narrator brings you into the fun...

Not the best story out of the series but still good!

This one was interesting - not dull by any means just not as hilarious or interestingly action packed. Despite that it was still enjoyable and leaves us with such a cliffhanger I’m rushing to get the next one! Go Space Team!

not the most enjoyable of the stories

i thought this was not the most enjoyable of the stories. I felt part of the story (fun world) dragged on a bit too long. ever read a fantasy story where you think "gosh this is too much"? that's how I felt. I think just the last 40 mins of the story really got back to what makes this series fun.
as always amazed by the narrator's ability.
