Synopsis

Lego Man in Space A True Story by Mara Shaughnessy

With over three million views on YouTube and covered by The New York Times , LA Times , the Discovery Channel , and almost every major news outlet in the world, the story of how two boys launched a LEGO man 80,000 feet into space using a weather balloon, a homemade parachute, and a video camera is truly an inspirational story for the ages. A triumph of ingenuity, science, and curiosity, this is the first and only book to tell the story of how Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad accomplished this amazing feat. With bright, original illustrations and an engaging story line, children, educators, librarians, and parents everywhere will go wild for this little LEGOnaut's true tale of space adventure. LEGO Man in Space includes a resource and activity guide for teachers.

Reviews

The brightly coloured drawings on a white background and Lego man's cheerful enthusiasm make this a real winner. Kids who can't get enough of space stories will lap this up and perhaps achieve some amazing feats of their own. --North Shore News / Vancouver Sun
