About the Author

Sue Fliess is the award-winning, bestselling author of more than fifty children's books including Cicada Symphony, The Earth Gives More, and the Kid Scientist series. Her books have been named to notable lists and translated into multiple languages. Sue lives in Northern Virginia.

Annabel Tempest loves her job--nothing makes her happier than creating patterns, drawing characters, cutting, sticking and coloring in. During her career she has illustrated everything from children's books and greetings cards to maps and packaging. She lives in England in deepest, darkest Somerset. She has a home full of boys--a big one, some small ones and a couple with waggy tails! Annabel is bursting with ideas and gets very excited about working on new pictures.
Reviews

"Fliess's (Flash and Gleam) lighthearted quatrain text clearly delineates what's required of a leader: Sadie keeps the crew motivated...and she shows tenacity and ingenuity in the face of a Martian sandstorm and a grounded ship. Bright and bouncy colors underscore the spirit of adventure, and Tempest's (the Babylit series) cartooned drawings have a freewheeling spontaneity that's well suited to the idea of Sadie going where her mind takes her. Back matter contributes facts about Mars and women in space." --Publishers Weekly

"Inspiring, adventurous fun for aspirational kids." --Kirkus Reviews

"The contributions that women have made in science is rarely taught. Sadie is the first to Mars and soon reaches to fame. I recommend Sadie's adventure into space to encourage young girls and boys to share in their science adventures into space." --Midwest Book Review
