Jasper: Space Dog

Written to mark the 50th anniversary of the moon landings in July 2019 and to tie in with the National Curriculum, Jasper: Space Dog is the first in a series of hilarious stories aimed at emerging independent readers.

Written by award winning author, Hilary Robinson (Mixed Up Fairy Tales/Where The Poppies Now Grow), Jasper: Space Dog is delightfully illustrated by Lewis James, a Prince’s Trust Ambassador. Lewis is mentored through Strauss House Productions by Mandy Stanley. Working alongside literary consultants, an expert in planetary science the story cleverly interweaves established facts and hilarious ideas about space, space travel and the moon landings. Told in the form of letters, Charlie Tanner and his dog Jasper consult experts with a view to achieving their own astrophysical ambitions.

Future titles will see Charlie Tanner and Jasper find out about Everest, the Vikings, Eco Living and more!

Jasper: Space Dog will be published in April 2019.
