Wow! Less than a month away to the launch of Rhino into space as part of the Story Time From Space program. This is all too exciting!! I just had to do an illustration of Rhino and Bird leaving planet Earth. Rhino will be going up with six other wonderful books:
Rosie Revere, Engineer by Andrea Beatty
I, Humanity by Jeffrey Bennett
Endeavour’s Long Journey by John “Danny” Olivas
Mousetronaut & Mousetronaut Goes to Mars by Mark Kelly
The Incredible Intergalactic Journey Home by Lost My Name
Barring any bad weather or technical issues, the launch is set for December 3rd at 6pm. Susan and I are planning on being there to see Rhino head to the ISS and into the hands of the astronauts. The readings will be beamed back to Earth sometime next year for all to see. Stay tuned for more updates. And keep your fingers crossed for zero delays!
