Go on a galactic adventure with the last human on Earth, his alien best friend, and a depressed android.

Introducing younger readers to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, this YA edition of the funny sci-fi classic includes an introduction from Artemis Fowl author Eoin Colfer. One Thursday lunchtime the Earth gets unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass.

It’s the final straw for Arthur Dent, who has already had his house bulldozed that morning.

But for Arthur, that is only the beginning . . . In the seconds before global obliteration, Arthur is plucked from the planet by his friend Ford Prefect – and together the pair venture out across the galaxy on the craziest, strangest road trip of all time! Totally hilarious, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy has been a radio show, TV show, stage play, comic book and film, and is and a work of utter comic genius from Douglas Adams.

This book was very funny and very intriguing. I was hooked. Each main character is well-developed and likeable in their own way. Lots of exciting events occur in this book which kept me on the edge of my toes.
