Publisher's Summary

Inspired by the childhood of real-life astronaut Chris Hadfield, The Darkest Dark will encourage listeners to dream the impossible.

Chris loves rockets and planets and pretending he's a brave astronaut, exploring the universe. Only one problem - at night, Chris doesn't feel so brave. He's afraid of the dark.

But when he watches the groundbreaking moon landing on TV, he realizes that space is the darkest dark there is - and the dark is beautiful and exciting, especially when you have big dreams to keep you company.

Selection 2016 - Junior Library Guild Selection

Not worth it

don't get me wrong, I think this is a cute story for kids. but charging $30 or more for a 6-minute audiobook is a rip-off of my opinion. I loved Chris Hatfields book astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth. there is nowhere before you buy this book that states it's only 6 minutes. it lists it as over 30 minutes. but if you don't have the physical book really the story is only 6 minutes long. I feel that Audible could be more upfront with what you're buying. I would return if I could
