Space Travellers
by Margaret Wild
illustrated by Gregory Rogers

Left homeless & poor in a big city, Zac & his mother, Mandy, find shelter in a big rocket in the centre of the city's park--that is, until Mandy returns with news of a room of their own

This unusual picture book, a portrait of an urban homeless community, features a loving mother & son whose only misfortune is to be socially displaced


Presented as gentle & poignant while retaining the realism of the situation. In the warm, grainy illustrations the characters are affectionately portrayed. Adroitly addresses a very real contemporary problem. Ages 6-9

Snuggled inside sleeping bags, by the glow of a flashlight, they eat a cold supper & fantasize about traveling to planets & stars

This sensitive portrayal of homeless life will help young readers better understand this very important issue

Although Mandy & her son are homeless they still find things to be thankful for

A beautiful, realistic portrayal of people helping each other through hard times

Shows these people as vibrantly interrelated & dimensional. The social-issue subtext here is subtly hidden in the details; the focus is on the humanity of Zac & his mother. Upbeat; good for discussion
