A hungry chicken (who thinks he’s a flamingo) and a quick-thinking worm set off on a madcap adventure — and forge an unlikely friendship.

Marcus is a worm, and a bird named Laurence who looks very much like a chicken is about to eat him for breakfast. So what does Marcus do? He strikes up a conversation, of course! But even after talking his way out of being eaten, Marcus’s troubles are just beginning: soon he is clinging to Laurence’s neck as the designated navigator on an absurd journey to Kenya, where his feathered companion dreams of finding happiness with other flamingos like himself. Except Marcus can’t actually read a map, and this bird is clearly not a flamingo. Will Marcus be able to get them both to Africa — or even manage to survive the day? Peppered with kid-friendly illustrations, this is a buddy comedy that will have readers wriggling with laughter.

Did you know that Jupiter is eleven times the size of Earth? The solar system is an incredible place that is still mostly unexplored. So, when Stella and her family move to a new town—where Stella has no friends except for her dog Steve—she goes exploring. In this educational book, travel across the solar system with Stella and Steve as Stella looks for a new home on another planet and imagines what life would be like on another world, from Mercury to Pluto. But along the way Stella learns that Venus has acid rain and Neptune is made entirely of gas, and she begins to wonder whether Earth might actually be the perfect home for her after all.

Featuring a fun and informational story from author James Duffett-Smith, and bold, comic book style illustrations by Bethany Straker, Stella and Steve Travel Through Space shows just how great the Earth is (while providing young children with an early science lesson) in a twist on “there’s no place like home.” A quirky but education book on the solar system (with slight undertones of conserving the Earth), this book for children ages 3 to 6 is sure to find a home in preschool and Kindergarten classrooms as well as home across the globe. Parents will love the science information throughout and kids will instantly connect with Stella and her suave pug Steve. Children will learn the basics about the solar system, the various planets, and why we are able to live on Earth so well.
