My brother bought this for his daughter, so I was able to read the PDF you get. Honestly, it's pretty disappointing. The writing/story is okay and cute for a childrens book, but it's lackluster overall. The artwork is not that great to begin with and is not colored (except for the cover, which is the best art in the book IMO)

I'd be very hesitant unless you have a young child/sibling/niece etc to give it to.

it's sold out now
didnt end up pulling the trigger, hopefully they release the book just on its own instead of in a package

Yeah I didn't get it either, didn't really want the bundle. But like someone else said hopefully they release on it's own, I would definitely snag it then.

Yeah, the lack of color really made the whole thing feel real cheap. Could have been a lot better. Its really short too, and the astronaut is hardly really even in it.

Overall its not bad but it could have been a ton better.

It could really use color, but other than that I kinda liked it.
