About the Author

Matt Roeser has never been to outer space, but he has eaten astronaut ice cream. When not dreaming of exploring the cosmos and writing books, he's busy eating non-astronaut food and designing book covers. Even though his favorite planet is Saturn, he currently lives on Earth in a town called Boston, Massachusetts. Oh No, Astro! is his first book. Visit him at MattRoeser.com.

Brad Woodard is always looking to explore new things. Even though his adventures have only been on Earth, he loves to draw and read about outer space. He is also the illustrator of Tatay's Gift, written by his wife Krystal Woodard. Brad lives in Austin, Texas, where he enjoys stargazing with his wife, son, and puppy.

Reviews

"Informative, dynamic, rich in vocabulary, and quite funny."--Kirkus Reviews
"A fun story for adventure seekers and space fans."--School Library Connection
"The precocious narration...coupled with Astro's arch speaking style...is great fun to read aloud, and fellow newcomer Woodard's Jetsons-esque style and bright palette bring just the right Space Age atmosphere to the story."--Publishers Weekly
"On the first read-through, some of the physics involved may be a bit complex for younger readers, although a spread of "Space Facts" at the end will help clear up lingering questions and perhaps pique the interest of would-be scientists. But this won't keep even the most science-averse young readers from enjoying the unamused Astro's voyage through the galaxy, or from demanding another read."--Booklist
