Launch of Jasper Space Dog
Jasper Space Dog, the latest book from Hilary, illustrated by Lewis James, has been released to support space topics in schools and to mark the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing on July 20th, 1969. Six hours later, on the 21st July, Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the lunar surface.
Mixing facts about space travel with hilarious ideas about the moon, Jasper Space Dog was selected as Love Reading4Kids Book of the Month in April and described by Julia Eccleshare as a book where “there’s much to enjoy as well as much to learn from this introduction to an important topic”. Hilary will be taking part in several events to mark the Summer Reading Challenge the theme of which, this year, is Space Chase.
