In this thrilling sci-fi adventure, epic danger and impossible odds are no match for one girl's courage!
  
Twelve-year-old Hope lives in White Rock, a town of inventors struggling to recover from World War III. But adventurous Hope is terrible at inventing. She would much rather sneak off to cliff dive into the Bomb’s Breath, the deadly band of air that surrounds the town.

When bandits invade White Rock to steal its greatest invention—priceless antibiotics—the town is left with a heartbreaking choice: hand over the medicine and die from disease, or die fighting the bandits. Help lies in a neighboring town, but the bandits count everyone fourteen and older each hour. Now Hope and her friends Aaren and Brock are only ones who can escape through the Bomb’s Breath.

For once, the daring and rebelliousness that usually get Hope into trouble might just save them all.

“Eddleman brings a strong sense of atmosphere to this post-apocalyptic coming-of-age piece, and the underlying message—that it’s possible to contribute in unexpected ways—is a positive one.” —Publishers Weekly

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.
