Space Travellers by Margaret Wild

  1. Zac and his mum live in a big city and they are homeless. Every evening they sleep in a big rocket which stands in the middle of a park. Zac loves the rocket and at night he dreams he is in outer space. This is a sensitive depiction of homeless life and will hopefully help younger students better understand this problem in society. Gregory Roger's illustrations are stunning, especially the night scenes from the rocket where the city lights do give the reader a closeness to the stars. Margaret Wild has written more than forty popular and award-winning books for children including Let the Celebrations Begin and Our Granny, both of which are available for borrowing from our Little Library of Rescued Books.
