Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 16, 2012
Author and award-winning illustrator Carrie Waddington Martin pays tribute to Ham—the first chimpanzee launched into outer space—through her illustrated book, Ham the Astrochimp: Anything is Possible. This book chronicles the amazing true story of a chimp from Cameroon whose historic space flight led the way to the moon.
This is the true story of a young chimpanzee that becomes the world’s first and most celebrated Astrochimp. Hams’ 16-minute flight in January 1961 immediately paved the way of human space flight. In Ham the Astrochimp: Anything is Possible, readers will follow the adventures of Ham as he successfully goes from tree-tops to Astrochimp training and discovers that life can bring unexpected adventures.
Enhanced by its vibrant and beautiful illustrations, this book is both a reminder to beginning readers about one of the world’s historic events and an instrument of inspiration. Exciting, nail-biting and triumphant, it brings Ham’s message to embrace change and thrive: “Don’t be afraid. Life’s a parade. Your adventures are waiting for you!”
