Astro, an asteroid that wants nothing more than for his personal outer space to be respected, is hit by a passing satellite and sent on what turns out to be a great adventure from the asteroid belt to Earth. Includes “space facts.”
This is a cute story about a somewhat timid and uptight asteroid sent hurtling through space after being knocked out of orbit and about his travels down to earth. The illustrations in this book are absolutely phenomenal and I love the bright, almost vintage-cartoon-style to them! The punny, science-filled wording is enjoyable as well, with just enough of a story to it to keep the learning interesting and the facts at the back of the book are perfect for giving little space aficionados a little extra info.
