Astrid has always loved the stars and space. "I want to be an astronaut!" she says. While Mama is away, Papa and Astrid have fun acting out the challenges an astronaut faces on a space mission - eating food from a tube, doing science experiments, living and sleeping in near-zero gravity.
Astrid can do it all!Then it's time to meet Mama at the airbase. But where has Mama been?
This book features a surprise ending, and a final spread about female astronauts and space travel.
