Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Feisty Sardine and her equally spunky pals Little Louie and (good) pirate Captain Yellow Shoulder continue their series of pun-filled, frolicsome adventures. In this round, the tales include an Internet-inspired bit of hooliganism, a boxing match, a fast-food fight, and a rock concert. Scoundrel Supermuscleman appears often, and there are several unique characters here--among them, the locals of the planet Topdog and the Queen of Applet. Some characters smoke and drink, and there's a sexy dog-woman character in a straining halter top, but the tales, which originate in France, are still wonderfully appealing, and the bouncy, bright art perfectly suits the Sardine troop's energy and sass. It's never too late to pick up this series. Francisca Goldsmith

Review

Review in March 1st 2007 issue of Kirkus

Doughty young Sardine and her cohorts continue to vanquish hilariously dopey Supermuscleman, mad scientist Doc Krok and other villains in nine more or less independent new adventures that range from helping out a crowd of cartoon characters angrily protesting because they're so lamely drawn ("Hey! You could at least draw me some pants!") to rescuing acres of stolen French fries and herds of wild "Burgeegies" in the mouthwatering kingdom of Yummy. Presented in colorful, crowded cartoon panels and well-endowed with both self-referential comments ("Comics are cool but we only get 10 pages per story . . . A movie's longer, so we'd have more time to kick Supermuscleman's butt") and characters with names like Emailia and Fetcher Bone, this expert mix of action, gross humor, and clever side remarks will, despite the lack of a cohesive plot line, draw carloads of Captain Underpants graduates.

Review in July 2007 issue of Bookpage

New from the ambitious and wide-ranging First Second, the Roaring Brook imprint that published Gene Luen Yang’s National Book Award-winning graphic novel American Born Chinese is Sardine in Outer Space 3, written and illustrated by Emmanuel Guibert and Joann Sfar (The Rabbi’s Cat). This is the latest in a wacky series that relates the adventures of a space-pirate girl named Sardine and her cohorts as they come up against all manner of oddball characters and dodgy situations, such as defeating Supermuscleman, Chief Executive Dictator of the Universe, in the Space Boxing Championship.

Review in July 2007 issue of School Library Journal

Gr 4-8—Intrepid Sardine and her wacky group of space-faring pirate friends are at it again! Not one to let odd situations slow her down, Sardine leads the gang as they confront Supermuscleman in an astoundingly creative assortment of adventures. From a planet made of fast food to a retirement home in space to a rock concert that shakes the universe, the situations the characters find themselves in are unrelentingly silly and will leave readers giggling. The bright, colorful illustrations are filled with manic action and fascinating details that will draw children in and have them coming back for more.—Dawn Rutherford, King County Library System, Bellevue, WA


More About the Author

Emmanuel Guibert has written a great many graphic novels for readers young and old, among them the Sardine in Outer Space series and The Professor's Daughter with Joann Sfar.

In 1994, a chance encounter with an American World War II veteran named Alan Cope marked the beginning of a deep friendship and the birth of a great biographical epic.

Another of Guibert's recent works is The Photographer. Showered with awards, translated around the world, it relates a Doctors Without Borders mission in 1980's Afghanistan through the eyes of a great reporter, the late Didier Lefevre.

My 8 year old precocious grandson loves this series. He is a big fan of Harry Potter and Star Wars as well so perhaps that is an indication of the children who enjoy this popular series.

Our children - ages girl age 7 and a boy age 5 - LOVE the sardine series. Sardine 1 starts as a more or less straightforward romp though space but as the series has progressed the characters have become more self aware and complex. I strongly recommend this book.
