24 Hours in Space

Author, Rob Lloyd Jones. Illustrator, Laurent Kling


This clever comic book invites readers to accompany an astronaut for a day. The judges loved the graphic novel format and “gripping story” that cleverly weaves in factual information. The book features a diverse cast of characters and mixes laugh-out-loud humour with real-life science, technology and must-know facts about living and working in space. Described as “really smart” and “thoroughly enjoyable” the judges believe that 24 Hours in Space is the kind of book every child should read, and will love.
