Join Giraffestronaut MC Longneck and robot companion Sputnik for an Epic Space Adventure!
Along the way, we'll experience features of all the most interesting worlds in our solar system, based on the latest space science. From climbing the largest mountain on Mars, bouncing off asteroids, ice skating on Jupiter's moon Europa, to flying on Titan, it's sure to be an action-packed journey!
Epic Space Adventure is exciting for kids of all ages, and teaches science and astronomy in a way that's easy to understand. The illustrations are based on the latest NASA space images ~ for example, from New Horizon's July 2015 Pluto Flyby.
This hardcover book edition features 56 pages of beautiful, full-color illustrations by professional artist Galen Frazer (find Galen's related space rap video here on Youtube).
By backing our Kickstarter, you can get tons of other great rewards along with Epic Space Adventure. The companion game SpaceMatch is full of educational facts, but it's easy for kids to play while learning about the planets, moons, and asteroids of our solar system. SpaceMatch is a drawing, matching, and trading card game, where your goal is to assemble as many planet-moon sets as possible (e.g., Jupiter-Io-Europa-Ganymede-Callisto).
We're also offering a sticker pack which features the planets and moons in our solar system, along with rocket, girrafestronaut, and robot companion stickers from Epic Space Adventure. In the deluxe pack, you also get rocket and Giraffestronaut full-color standing cardboard cutouts, so you can replay the adventure at home.
