Product description

Review

This is such a unique take on the solar system, with animals designed as planets. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous. In the story, little Scout shoots up to space in a rocket. A lovely easy-to-read book for little explorers aged 4+. ― Cairns Post on ZOOM

Her joyful watercolours exhibit a sense of childlike wonder that perfectly complements the story . . . this bright debut picture book will resonate with young children aged three and up. ― Books + Publishing on ZOOM

Highly recommended. Themes: Planets, Solar system, STEM, Astronomy. For an introduction to the planets in our solar system and the order in which they appear from the sun, this is a wonderful book. With clear, bright and inviting illustrations bound to entice the youngest reader, the text tells us of Scout a young inventor, explorer and dreamer. Each day he thinks about things and builds his space ship, ready to be launched in his back yard. In space he visits each of the planets in our Solar System in turn, naming them and showing some of their details. Each of the planets is likened to an animal encouraging the smaller reader to associate that planet with something known and in reading this book, learn the order of the planets. So the first planet, Mercury, the smallest of the planets is fashioned as a small teddy bear lying on a rug, the second, Venus is shaped like a kangaroo, and shown to be a very bright planet.
The third rock from the sun, Earth, is given the shape of a large bear, tickled by people walking across her belly. Earth is followed by little red Mars, a fox smiling at the passing astronaut. Then a whale, the mighty Jupiter, and Saturn, an elephant girdled by its rings, followed by Uranus, a green crocodile and finally Neptune, a blue tiger, the last of the planets. With a flurry of noises and lights, Scout realises that he is running out of fuel. He puts out a call for help and gets a response from the tiny frozen dwarf planet, Pluto, but before anything can happen, Pluto sneezes and Scout lands in his own backyard. Scout the adventurer has had a very busy day.
This joyous book will give younger readers a basic understanding of where the planets of our Solar System sit in relation with each others, and give them a little information about each planet through Scout's adventure.
Independent author/illustrator Sha'an has produced a stunning read aloud book which will find a place in school libraries, homes and classrooms. Eager readers will see the link between the planets and Scout's mobile above his bed, reflecting the animals shown as each planet.

I'm averse to books for children that are preachy. This enchanting adventure does indeed have a distinct eco message, yet there's joy and surprise in the story of Fern, a child who lives alone in a city which is clean but soulless. The inhabitants fear everything that lies beyond the walls especially night infiltrators whom they call bandits. Fern finds the bandits in the forest and they are perfectly okay, guided by a giant raccoon, Bo, who instructs them how to grow food from detritus. With his big stripy tail, he dominates visually. A young Sydney artist, Sha'an d'Anthes, created this delightful fantasy. ― NATIONAL [PRINT] Country Style [AUDIENCE: 61,429 ASR: AUD 16,579]
