This year’s Children’s Book Week theme is ‘Read Across the Universe’. It’s great encouragement for all of us to read broadly and I would like to offer a free one-hour Skype author talk or Google Hangout to the school or library that creates the best Book Week display or event around my book Galactic Adventures: First Kids in Space. See if you can beat the one above (which I think is really cool, created by students at Brisbane’s John Paul College).
Galactic Adventures: First Kids in Space is a Middle-Grade action-adventure story about the first five kids and teens chosen for the civilian space travel program. The five are subjected to intense training on the centrifuge, the vomit comet, the vestibular chair, as well as being forced to leap from a plane – some of the real-life training tools for space travellers. The non-fiction section at the back of the book shares the most interesting information that I discovered while writing plus a quiz for the would-be space traveller.
All pics of Galactic Adventures displays and stunts will be featured here on the blog during Book Week and the best will win the author talk.
