 About the Book 

A really rubbish adventure... in outer spaceHarvey Drew is an ordinary eleven-year-old who dreams of great adventures in outer space. The Toxic Spew is an intergalactic waste disposal ship. The two are on a collision course for chaos!After Harvey unwittingly responds to an alien signal, he is transported to the flight deck of The Toxic Spew by the ships bad-tempered computer, who promptly loses his return address. Even though none of the crew have even heard of Earth, let alone met an Earthling, Harvey becomes Captain of the stroppy, pizza-obsessed, brave (but grubby) crew, and almost immediately has to save them from poisonous pink maggots, dangerous exploding space-rubbish and a multiple spaceship pile-up on Hyperspaceway B16. Luckily, leading his rabble crew out of danger isnt so different from captaining his football team, and it turns out Harvey is just the boy to save the day!ABOUT THE AUTHORCas spent many years having a fabulous time, and a great deal of fun, working in childrens television drama with CBBC.
