Loopy Lucy – Flying with Hubble

From a blurry eyed, awkward gymnastics failure to a courageous space traveller, 11-year-old Lucy weaves through the chaos created when a portal opens up in her suburban laundry!

How was she to know that her mother, a great astronomer, was powering the portal with her bedtime space stories!?

Each adventure through the portal to the waiting Hubble Telescope, builds on Lucy’s strength and imagination, while she desperately tries to convince her mother of her Super Powers.

Can she prove it, or does the adult brain swiftly swallow up the magic?

  1. Kate Gordon

    An Amazon US reviewer said: “I teach 6th grade science and I actually read this for a master’s class and I really enjoyed it. I think my kids would as well. To be a “kid’s book”, it kind of sucked me in while reading it, haha. I’ll have to look up more of these books for my little library in my class.”
