The Darkest Dark
What is it about?
A beautifully illustrated story book from astronaut Chris Hadfield about a young boy who faces his fears, and goes on to reach the stars. The boy, also called Chris, is afraid that aliens will come if he falls asleep in the dark. His parents do everything to put his mind at ease, but Chris can't sleep. Until his dad tells him that he won't be allowed go next door tomorrow unless he stays in his own bed. Eventually Chris falls asleep and has his favourite dream where he flies his spaceship all the way to the moon. We find out the event in the neighbours house the next day is something that happened to Chris Hadfield in real life on the evening. of 20 July 1969. The Hadfield's had no TV so they went to a neighbours house to watch the Apollo 11 landing. When Chris saw Neil Armstrong step onto the surface of the moon his life changed forever. He knew from that moment he wanted to be an astronaut too. It's a heart warming, inspiring story, great for any age.
