Goodnight Spaceman

Publisher: Puffin

Review

Two little boys are getting ready for bed in their space-themed bedroom, decorated with posters of planets, starry duvets and spaceship mobiles. As they look at the twinkling stars through their window, the boys imagine they are astronauts, about to blast off in search of their spaceman dad.

They dock their craft at his space station and join the crew on board. Dad shows them all the planets and the dazzling Milky Way before they head for home.

Opening with a special letter from the first British ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut Tim Peake, this rhyming picture book will inspire any child who gazes at the night sky, longing to explore space.

Informative, exciting and beautifully illustrated, it will delight anyone with an interest in finding out more about the world beyond our planet.
