Dogs in space! Share this book with middle graders who enjoy stories about dogs, space adventures, or action adventure stories-or all three!

Lopside is a Barkonaut, a specially trained dog who assists human astronauts on missions in space. He and the crew aboard the spaceship Laika are en route to set up an outpost on a distant planet.

When the mission takes a disastrous turn, the Barkonauts on board suddenly find themselves completely alone on their severely damaged ship.

Survival seems impossible. But these dogs are Barkonauts-and Barkonauts always complete their mission.

SOS. Ship damaged. Human crew missing. We are the dogs. We are alone.
