Awards & Accolades
"...using a rich palette and flowing lines over starry, airbrushed backgrounds, Tavares places two delighted young explorers in brightly patterned garb soaring atop a celestial bear, flinging a planet like a Frisbee, waving wands or streamers and sailing over elegantly undulant landscapes..." — Kirkus Reviews
"..the bright tone of the poetry and the appealing, strong art are a happy combination" — School Library Journal
"Most of Heine's text serves as a fantasy about space travel, but a multi-page afterward supplies fact about space, the solar system, planets and constellations..." — Publishers Weekly
