Astro Poetica

astro-4

This lovely thing landed on my doorstep last week. 🙂  ‘Astro Poetica’, a volume of charming poems about space written by Dom Conlon, with some pictures by me.  It’s full of love and fun and aliens and planets and solar systems..and I managed to sneak my cat in there somewhere too.

As well as being a rather beautiful, nice to hold thing ‘Astro’ is the first time I’ve seen myself in print.  And, by gum, I think I look rather good.  (My work, obviously. Not actual me.)  I’m immodestly pleased with myself.  And with Dom.  I think we did good.  And to think, when Dom asked me to illustrate it I said “Don’t you think you should ask someone who knows what they’re doing?”  I’m pleased he ignored me.

I think children will love this book.  I hope they read the ‘Things to Think’ and ‘Things to Do’ sections and write some poetry of their own.  I have a child on loan at the moment, so I’ll be testing it out later.  I know adults will like it, because I do and I am one.

‘Astro Poetica’ is published by Inkology. If you look here Inkology.co.uk you’ll find lots of free and lovely stories and poems for children. You can follow @InkologyStories on Twitter as well.

You can get a copy of  ‘Astro Poetica’ from Amazon. It is also available on Kindle from Amazon or for your ipad from itunes and there is a rather lovely limited edition hardback version, which has extra content (also on Amazon).
