Comet Kurt & Rex: Spacemail

Comet Kurt has his very own space rocket. He has a very cool job too. Kurt is a rocket delivery boy flying through outer space with his trusted robot dog Rex. A fun read for young school children – guaranteed to spark their imagination.

“Spacemail” is a wonderful hybrid between an illustrated book and a comic book. Perfect as bedtime story for preschoolers but also suited for young readers who crave a different experience than normal chapter books.

Comet Curt and his trusted robot dog Rex are characters that the children can relate to and identify with. Everyone dreams of flying through space - and bringing your dog would be all the more fun!

The book invites the young reader to experience the story by way of  many different readings strategies. Every turn of the page is a small surprise.
