A FUTURE ASTRONAUT, AFRAID OF THE DARK?
Chris loves rockets and planets and pretending he’s a brave astronaut, exploring the universe. Only one problem — at night, Chris doesn’t feel so brave. He’s afraid of the dark.
But when he watches the groundbreaking Moon landing on TV, he realizes that space is the darkest dark there is — and the dark is beautiful and exciting, especially when you have big dreams to keep you company.
Inspired by the childhood of real-life astronaut Chris Hadfield and brought to life by Terry and Eric Fan’s lush, evocative illustrations, The Darkest Dark will encourage readers to dream the impossible.
* “The Fan brothers (The Night Gardener) switch easily between fantasy elements and documentary images…The idea that a famous astronaut was once afraid of the dark may win some recalcitrant bed-goers’ hearts, and readers with dreams of space travel will jump at this.”
