Publisher Description

Do you have what it takes to be an astronaut? Blast off in this fun nonfiction picture book by the author of Pop! The Invention of Bubble Gum to find out!

With an appealing text and funny, brightly colored illustrations, Meghan McCarthy transports aspiring space travelers to astronaut school in her young nonfiction picture book. Take a ride on the "Vomit Comet" and learn how it feels to be weightless. Try a bite of astronaut food, such as delicious freeze-dried ice cream. Have your measurements taken-100 of your hand alone-for your very own space suit. Get ready for liftoff!

"McCarthy introduces the paraphernalia of rocket travel with a corollary, direct humor that understands and respects its audience." -Booklist

"This appealing book is sure to find a wide audience." -School Library Journal
