Space Case wins the Young Jury Award in Belgium

Space Case by Stuart Gibbs has won the Young Jury Award. It was part of a shortlist of eight titles read by young Belgium readers. A network of over five hundred adult volunteers, most of them librarians, support the Young Jury Award project by selecting the books and coaching the reading groups. This year, over 7,500 young readers between the age of 4 and 16 participated.

This is great news for the Dutch edition of Space Case, the first volume of the Moon Base Alpha trilogy, which was published by Uniboek. The third and final installment will be published in the US in Spring 2018. The trilogy was also recently sold to Salani in Italy at auction. Stuart Gibbs has now sold over 1.5 million copies across his three middle grade series (Spy School, FunJungle and Moon Base Alpha).
