“I am READY FOR LAUNCH! Five… four… three… two…”
The Book Fairies were delighted to have been joined by the legend that is KATE PANKHURST this week to share copies of We Are All Astronauts! Who was lucky enough to spot a copy that was launched around the UK?
About the book:
REACH FOR THE STARS and learn all about SPACE in this fact-packed new book from the bestselling creator of the FANTASTICALLY GREAT WOMEN series! Mixing STEM topics with a sweet story of figuring out your place in the world, this is the perfect introduction to space for the next generation of space travellers, whoever they may be.
Budding astronaut Luna Scope wants nothing more than to blast off into space and explore the cosmos, but how does she go from a cardboard rocket in her room to running experiments on the International Space Station? Enter Granny, who’s about to teach Luna just how to make her dream a reality.
From discovering what shooting stars are really made of and learning how to complete a spacewalk, to rocket building lessons by Mary Jackson and space shuttle trips with Mae Jamison– Luna and her Granny take us on a crash course adventure into how to become a successful astronaut. Meeting incredible female space pioneers along the way, Granny takes Luna on a fact-filled space adventure showing her that ANYONE can be an astronaut if they dream big enough. In fact, just by standing on planet Earth, you’re already closer than you think…
From Kate Pankhurst, award-winning creator of FANTASTICALLY GREAT WOMEN, this is the first in a new series tackling popular non-fiction topics in fun new ways. Inspiring young readers to aim high, dream big and see that they too can reach for the stars!
Kate and the fairies were delighted to be spotted by some very happy finders – and they were more than happy to ask for a signature and have their photographs taken!
