How do you make the most epic bedtime story experience in the universe? While this might sound like the plot for an unreleased Pixar film, we took the challenge quite seriously. Magical bedtimes are our thing.
So we started by making a book that could only be for one child. Each copy of The Incredible Intergalactic Journey Home can only be for the person it’s ordered for, as the entire story revolves around both their name and home address.
The story is all about a little boy or girl making their way from the edge of the universe back home. Which got us thinking - what if this particular storytime could come… from space?
Which is where our friends at Story Time From Space stepped in. They’re a lovely non-profit dedicated to getting kids interested in reading and science, and they do so in the most awesome way possible: sending books in a rocket to the International Space Station to be read by astronauts to kids on earth. We were over the moon (see what we did there) when they chose us to be part of their next mission!
With them on board, we needed to chose the lucky child who’s personalised book would be sent up to space. We ran a contest...
And Roraigh won!
