Cartoon-style boy-astronaut Doodle Tom and his sidekick Astrocat take kids on a doodle odyssey through space. Offers over 40 space-related topics, with each spread or double spread featuring info on that topic (i.e. planets, things in space, space travel, ETs, technology, etc.) and a related drawing activity. The space info is mostly factual and written in a kid-friendly manner; the drawing activities are more whimsical, though they do reference the topic in some respect. For example, kids are inspired to draw faces on moons, or the tail of a comet, or what a Martian might look like. The pages contain partially drawn figures and compositions to help kids get started, with plenty of room for them to invent their own drawings. Two pages of stickers add to the creative possibilities.

About the Author

Elise Gravel is the wildly imaginative creator of "Let's Draw and Doodle Together," which quickly achieved multiple printings, and the app Doodle Jump, which has achieved a near-AngryBirds popularity. Artwork and outerspace are two of her abiding interests and she was delighted to be able to blend them together for kids. Elise has written another doodle activity book, and two well-received titles for Blue Apple's Balloon Toons series. She also has several titles on upcoming lists. The author lives in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Praise For…

Praise for Elise Gravel's A Visit to Dr. Bugspit:
"...this Balloon Toons entry will exert a strong draw on budding graphic novel fans as well as children fascinated by yucky stuff. Real visits to the doctor are rarely so hilarious." --Kirkus Reviews

Elise's Let's Draw and Doodle Together is featured in the gift shops of prestigious museums. Of equal importance, it's reprinting!
