A Ladybird Book: The Solar System

A Ladybird Book: The Solar System


Looking up at the sky on a clear night, you might see shining stars, a bright moon and mysterious coloured dots but there many more secrets hiding out in space.

The Solar System takes readers on a journey from the Earth's surface, through the atmosphere and out into space as you travel from centre of the universe to discover the stars, planets, moons and comets that call our solar system home.

About the authors

Brave The Woods (Illustrator)

Brad and Krystal met in college and knew that someday they would start a creative studio together, creating the kind of work for clients and causes they were passionate about. Someday came, and Brave the Woods was born.

Brave the Woods is not simply a name, it's a call to action to be adventurous and curious. Brad has a passion for creating - he grew up doing things like drawing along with art shows on PBS, illustrating books, designing CB radio outposts in his backyard, painting portraits and more. When he "grew up" he earned a BFA in graphic design, but his love of painting and illustration never left him. Krystal has always loved all things creative. Though admittedly not artistically inclined, she channels her creativity in strategic and written outlets. And together, they make a great creative team!
