Blast Off with Doodle Tom: A Space Doodle Odyssey Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cartoon-style boy-astronaut Doodle Tom and his sidekick Astrocat take kids on a doodle odyssey through space. Offers over 40 space-related topics, with each spread or double spread featuring info on that topic (i.e. planets, things in space, space travel, ETs, technology, etc.) and a related drawing activity. The space info is mostly factual and written in a kid-friendly manner; the drawing activities are more whimsical, though they do reference the topic in some respect. For example, kids are inspired to draw faces on moons, or the tail of a comet, or what a Martian might look like. The pages contain partially drawn figures and compositions to help kids get started, with plenty of room for them to invent their own drawings. Two pages of stickers add to the creative possibilities.

Review:

"A pencil serves as a rocket ship for Astrocat and a cartoon boy named Doodle Tom in an activity book that incorporates facts about the solar system ('The sun makes life on Earth possible by giving us just the right amount of heat and light'), the space race, planets, black holes, and more. Doodle Tom and Astrocat's interstellar adventures unfold on graph paper, and Gravel's matte spreads playfully urge readers to complete images and to contribute their own drawings: 'Trace the shape and swirly markings on Venus and show what you might cook with this giant ball of heat. Hot dogs? Toast? Shish kabob?' The scientific and historical tidbits, hip aesthetic (Gravel's illustrations at times recall the work of Calef Brown), and imaginative prompts should motivate space-loving readers to fire up their magic markers. Ages 6 — up." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Artwork and outerspace are two of her abiding interests and she was delighted to be able to blend them together for kids. Elise has written another doodle activity book, and two well-received titles for Blue Apple's Balloon Toons series. She also has several titles on upcoming lists.
