A Q&A with the Star* of our book, Sun *Get it? Star of our book?
Who is your favorite planet? And remember, this book will be read mostly by Earthlings.
Of course I don't have a favorite. Each is special--and kind of puny. That's like asking a human to pick a favorite fingernail.
You've been around for nearly 4.6 billion years, and are expected to shine at least 6 billion more. How do you stay so enthusiastic?
I like to keep moving. As you have read, I rotate. But also, about every 11 years, my poles change magnetic polarity. I also orbit the Milky Way--taking Earth and all my planets with me. That's a long trip--about 230 million years.
Do you have any advice for readers?
Yes. Never stare directly at me--even during a solar eclipse--because I can damage your eyes. You delicate earthlings can't handle my ultraviolet rays. Also, eat your vegetables. I helped grow them.
About the Author
Stevie Lewis has been living on the road, furthering her passion for climbing, art, and the outdoors. Striving to live simply and tread lightly on the earth, she gathers inspiration from a variety of places, be it climbing in the high desert in central Oregon, hiking in the wilderness of Alaska, or sharing laughs with fellow travelers around a campfire. After working for four years in animation, she now illustrates children's books and creates art based on her travels.
Stevie's books include A Week without Tuesday, Finding Serendipity, and Lost in the Library.

These stories are narrated by their main character. So, Sun writes about itself (and does a fantastic job, I might add). Readers learn about Sun's classification in the Milky Way, its nearest neighbor stars, how hot and how far away it is from things all within a first person narrative that grabs kids' attentions.
Stevie Levis' artwork is bold and bright and inspired. Perfect for a story that takes place in outer space and on earth's surface (when discussing how Sun helps earthlings).
This is one of those series that you'll want the entire collection. We can't wait for the upcoming titles.
