Fun Fact! Apparently there are no green stars in space! Well we can think of one! Any star shining mostly green will be putting out lots of red and blue as well, making the star look white. A star's temperature will make it look orange, yellow, red, or blue, but you just can't get green! Our eyes simply won't see it that way. That's why there are no green stars.
Have an egg-cellent Easter - from Pootle, Oopsy and 'Eggi'!!
We love books! To celebrate World Book Day, we wanted to share some of Nick Butterworth's wonderful artwork. So here are a couple of his concept sketches for 'Groobie's Spacewash' published by Walker Books. A glimpse at how he creates the layout for his beautiful books :)
