What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

This musical mission to Mars will have young astronauts talking—and singing—about the science of space travel. Singing astronauts on a mission explore the science behind a trip to Mars, from launch to landing on the Red Planet. Set to the tune of “The Farmer in the Dell,” this jaunty journey follows five adorable, bobble-headed astronauts as they learn how to bathe in zero gravity, grow veggies in space, and entertain themselves on the six-month trip.

This book defies gravity—text and art float free on the page, encouraging readers to turn the book sideways and upside-down.

An interactive, innovative approach to interstellar fun.
