Space Station Rat

This 2005 book by Michael J. Daley is for children but I enjoyed it. The story involves a lavender lab rat that gets sent out to space by mistake and befriends a lonely boy. The boy is on a space station with his parents who are too busy to spend much time with him. Learn more on author's website.The sequel is 'Rat Trap' (2008).

Spotnik the Atomic Wonder Dog


Created in 2008 by Tina Kugler on commission for Rahr-West Art Museum in Manitowoc.

Tina has an illustration blog from which you can link to her Flickr website. Flickr ID:  tina kugler

She also several posters Sputnikfest, an annual festival in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.

It's a "wacky tacky" space-themed festival to commemorate debris from Sputnik IV falling in Manitowoc in 1962. 

Click here for more information about the festival.
