The Darkest Dark
Young Chris is a very important astronaut. When Dad says it’s time for bed – Sorry, no can do: An astronaut’s work is never done. But in the dark lurk all kinds of scary aliens. So Chris doesn’t like to sleep, but Mum and Dad do! When he watches in awe at the Apollo 11 Moon Landing, Chris realizes he must overcome his fear of the dark. For in the darkest dark of space lies a power and a mystery that might just help Chris make his dreams come true.
Inspired by the childhood of real-life astronaut, Commander Chris Hadfield, author of An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth. The Darkest Dark is his debut children’s book, brought to life by the illustrations of Terry and Eric Fan. The evocative beauty of their pictures brings to life a bedtime story that will encourage children to dream big, think like an astronaut and embrace the unknown.
