Astrid, a little brown skinned girl wants to be an astronaut. We see her playing with Papa as they pretend to eat food from tubes in space and talk about zero gravity. The joyful nature of their relationship is beautifully expressed by the bold colours and brush strokes in acrylic paint that are Wilson-Max's trademark style. A delightful surprise awaits the reader when Papa and Astrid go to pick up Mama from the airbase. This is a lovely story for any child who dreams of flying into space.
