Penguin ties with Tim Peake for new picture book

Goodnight Spaceman produced in collaboration with astronaut and European Space Agency.

Penguin Random House UK Children’s has teamed up with astronaut Tim Peake and the European Space Agency for a new picture book.

Goodnight Spaceman will be released on April 7 and has been inspired by Tim’s mission and his young sons – Oliver and Thomas – who watched their dad launch into space in December 2015.

Tim has also provided a forewood for the book, which has been written by Michelle Robinson and illustrated by Nick East.

Francesca Dow, md at Penguin Random House Children’s, commented: “We couldn’t be more excited to be publishing Goodnight Spaceman in collaboration with our partners at ESA.

“We are thrilled to be working closely with both ESA and the UK Space Agency, as together we can both excite children about space discovery, whilst harnessing their love of reading.”

Tim Peake added: “I hope it may inspire a new generation of boys and girls to look up to the stars and not just ask questions, but to go and seek answers of their own.”
