It’s time for bed, but Stella has an important trip to make first. After she brushes her teeth, she climbs aboard her rocket ship and zooms off into space in search of adventure. She’s bouncing on the moon when her dad’s voice comes over the radio: EARTH TO STELLA: NO JUMPING ON THE BED! Stella lifts off again, this time traveling even deeper into space. But after a while she loses contact with Earth. What’s happening back on her home planet?
Kid-friendly, cute-as-a-button illustrations complement this humorous story about a girl with her head in the cosmos and a dad ready to bring her back down to Earth. This delightful father-daughter story will spark the imagination of any young explorer and is a charming choice for Father’s Day.

Philip Hopman lives in the Netherlands and has illustrated many books for children that have been published throughout Europe.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2–Stella loves everything about space, and her imagination takes her out into the solar system at bedtime. She lands on a planet and meets tingly blue space bugs, but she stays safely grounded to Earth through on-and-off conversations with Dad. EARTH TO STELLA: DONT FORGET TO SCRUB BEHIND THOSE EARS! 'CHECK, said Stella, just before she dons her helmet, boards her chicken-shaped rocket ship, and starts the countdown to blastoff. EARTH TO STELLA: COULD YOU KEEP THE NOISE DOWN, PLEASE? What makes this story extra special is the poignant bedtime routine between father and daughter. Their bond is verbal and visibly loving, yet always filled with a sense of fun and a shared love of space. Children get a glimpse of the sun, stars, and a shooting comet. Everything will draw them in: the protagonists vivid imagination; the pages bursting with color; the innovative illustrations in pastels, crayon, and paint; and the dialogue boxes that resemble radio transmissions. A stellar choice for independent readers and groups alike.–Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL
