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

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
