THE LITTLE SPACECRAFT THAT COULD

NEW HORIZONS' AMAZING JOURNEY TO PLUTO AND ARROKOTH 

Ride along with the New Horizons spacecraft as she rockets three billion miles to Pluto!

Be there as she takes the first close-up photos of Pluto--then journeys another billion miles to mini-world, Arrokoth.

You'll whiz through space at more than 10 miles per second; learn how giant planet Jupiter helped the little spacecraft reach Pluto; and discover the astonishing surface feature that made the world fall in love with Pluto.

Joyce Lapin and Simona Ceccarelli--the author and illustrator duo behind If You Had Your Birthday Party on the Moon--invite you to join them on this real-life adventure to the edge of the solar system!

IF YOU HAD YOUR BIRTHDAY PARTY ON THE MOON

Blast off for your first extraterrestrial birthday party!

   

On the glorious rocket ride, you and your friends will float. And on the Moon, you'll jump six times higher and farther than you can on Earth!   

                                           

You'll bounce in and out of craters, make "moon angels" in the moondust, and find that party balloons and piñatas behave very weirdly on the Moon!

     

Craterfuls of fun for kids who love space and birthdays!

Ages 6 and up
