Product description

Are you mad about space? Are you scared of the dark? In this picture book, a real-life astronaut shows that darkness can be full of magic! Little Chris is a very busy astronaut. Saving the planet from aliens is much more important than having a bath or going to bed. Besides, bedtime is when the worst sort of alien appears: the dark. But when Chris watches the first moon landing on TV, he sees that the darkness of space is much darker than his bedroom. It’s the darkest dark ever, full of unknown things – and he can’t wait to explore it!

  • A truly magical picture book by astronaut Chris Hadfield
  • Empowering story of facing fears and reaching for the stars
  • Chris is the internationally bestselling author of You Are Here
  • Spectacular artwork captures the magic of our world and space

“Strikingly beautiful… a book to inspire children with the wonder of space and all the opportunities life holds for them.” Lovereading4kids
