Up, Up and Away
Orson is a young boy with big ambitions. When he decides to make something, he wants it to be spectacular, so he does careful research, gathers his building materials, and finally, with a very big bang, he has made… A planet!
When his planet starts to look sad, Orson discovers that building something can be relatively easy but looking after it is often much more challenging. Eventually, he has to make tough choices, and learns some valuable lessons about bravery and letting go.
Gently humorous illustrations bring Orson's adventures to life and help to present an interesting combination of basic science and complex concepts of responsibility in an appealing and accessible format.
