Space Boy Books
Space Boy is a trilogy of children’s books by Dian Curtis Regan, published by Boyds Mills & Kane. They follow a boy named Niko, his trusty robot companion Radar, and his dog Tag on adventures in outer space. Using his cardboard-box spaceship and a little imagination, Niko blasts off and sails among the stars battling Snow Monsters, Space Pirates--and his sister, Posh. Dian’s books promote the importance of teamwork, of using your imagination, and they encourage an interest in space for young readers.
Space Boy was a finalist for the Colorado Book Award and the Colorado Authors' League Award. It won a Crystal Kite Award from the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators and was the one book chosen by Colorado Humanities to represent Colorado authors at the National Book Festival in Washington D.C.
