A Martian Mousetronaut
I have previously blogged about rattermeeces (sometimes spelled rattermeeses), but this is the first time I've mentioned a mousetronaut. Our book trailer elaborates.
Mousetronaut Goes to Mars, by Astronaut Mark Kelly
(Illustrated by C. F. Payne)
This is a cute children's picture book and is filled with scientific information. The drawings are extremely authentic, which makes sense, given that author Mark Kelly is a NASA astronaut, and C. F. Payne can draw anything. It is an uplifting adventure story that should inspire young readers to strive to explore and achieve. It's available in our Evergreen Indiana online catalog.

P.S. "Rocket Man (I Think It's Going to Be a Long, Long Time)," by Elton John, is the quintessential Mars tune. The song appeared on the LP Honky Château (1972). Elton performed the song in this 1972 video.
