PARENT & TEACHER TESTIMONIALS:
"A moving and evocative story, reminiscent of Oliver Jeffers, about An Unlikely Friendship That Changes The World." Kym D. Wimbis, Author of the Lucky Duck Books.
“As a teacher, I’m always on the lookout for stories that allow meaningful discussions. This book revolves around a plethora of important subjects, from the Power Of Friendship, over Looking After Our Planet, to Birth And Rebirth, to name just a few. This stimulated so much discussion in our PSHE unit on “Taking Responsibilities” that we used it in most lessons. This book is a MUST for every child to read.” Lucy McGregor, Primary School Teacher, Key Stage 2.
“Beyond the obvious message of the importance of saving the planet, this story Allows Children To Experience An Array Of Emotions, such as loneliness, hope, love, and happiness. This book also gently approaches the difficult and sad topic of life naturally coming to an end. When I helped my class to put the sadness in perspective, we could fully enjoy the book’s happy ending.” Sarah Harris, Preschool Child Care Practitioner.

Two boys, Will and Nate, from different worlds (planets), become very strong friends "out of the blue (sky)"... and as it so happens, for very good reason. Will and Nate's friendship takes them through a long journey of trying to bring Nate's Planet Prune back to life... a planet on the brink of destruction. The reasons for Planet Prune's destruction are not too foreign to us Earthlings, certainly giving all of us a moment to reflect...
The third theme of the book is the importance of science and all the exciting things science can make us do!
Overall, "Letters From Galaxy 8" is a 5-star book all around, in terms of its content and its superb illustrations. Definitely recommended!
