Poor Thabo is horrified when his so-called ‘loving’ parents inform him that his family is moving to Mars! Could his life get any worse? Apparently so, since his parents are forcing him to document his last days on Earth in this log book. Will he survive Mars Boot Camp? Will he be able to smuggle his two best friends on board the space shuttle? And, most importantly, will he manage to sneak a farewell kiss from Mbali?
Similar to series such as the popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Thabo, the space dude is characterised by humour and diary / log book entries. This book contains futuristic and science fiction elements.
