Author and illustrator Kate Pankhurst introduces her beautiful new picture book in this interactive family draw-along

Luna 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 ISS? 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.

But what Luna soon comes to realise is that, despite all this training, she’s been standing in space this whole time. Zooming through the cosmos on a blue-and-green ball we call Earth. Because she’s always been an astronaut … in fact, we are ALL astronauts. We just need the tools to get us there.

Kate Pankhurst is the bestselling author and illustrator of the trailblazing and internationally successful Fantastically Great Women books. Kate's books have been translated into 22 languages and been shortlisted for many awards, including the NIBBIES award for Children's Illustrated & Non-fiction. Most recently, her first book Fantastically Great Women who Changed the World has been adapted into an inspiring stage show, touring the UK in 2021 and 2022. Most days, Kate can be found illustrating and writing in her studio in Leeds with her spotty dog, Olive. She loves a good story, the funnier the better, and gets her best ideas by doodling in her sketchbook; because even quick, wonky drawings can spark ideas for amazing plots.
