Synopsis

A pull-out Glow-in-the-Dark poster is included with this updated picture book of The Darkest Dark by astronaut Chris Hadfield, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.



"While I was growing up, the Moon helped light the path to my dreams. But it was on a hot July night that my dreamy thoughts became real. The brave astronauts of Apollo 11 travelled to that distant place and stepped out onto its surface, their boots blazing a new trail in the ancient grey dust. Those footprints showed me that impossible things can happen." Chris Hadfield.



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.

Chris Hadfield was the first Canadian to walk in space. He is a seasoned and accomplished astronaut, having spent 166 days orbiting the plant. Inspired to become an astronaut after watching the Apollo 11 Moon Landing, Hadfield was the top graduate of the U.S Air Force test pilot school in 1988 and U.S Navy test pilot of the year in 1991. He was selected to be an astronaut in 1992. Serving as commander of the international space station he conducted a record-setting number of scientific experiments, oversaw an emergency spacewalk, and gained worldwide acclaim for his breathtaking photographs and educational videos about life in space. Alongside all of this, he also made a zero gravity version of David Bowie's 'Space Oddity', which received over 10 million views in its first three days online. Hadfield's book An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth teaches how to think like an astronaut and apply the lessons of space to life on Earth. Kate Fillion is a best selling Canadian author and journalist. Brothers Eric Fan and Terry Fan received their formal art training at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto. Their work is a blend of traditional and contemporary techniques, using ink or graphite mixed with digital. They are authors of the critically acclaimed picture book The Night Gardener. They have illustrated such books as The Thing About Jellyfish, One Amazing Elephant and The Antlered Ship.
