A mother-son team create a Planet Named Up-in-the-Sky
You may think you have a demanding mother -- one who wanted you to take out the garbage, clean your room, get something from the store...Not every mother turns to her son and asks him to create a robot elephant, but that's what Amy Grachow did to her son Keith.
Keith did manage to create Ms. Ella Robo-Phant, complete with detachable trunk. And then Amy asked him to create an ocean of butterflies, a postman that is a whirligig snail, clouds made of jellyfish, and a tower made of spaghetti.
All of this is for the children's book they've co-authored: On A Planet Named Up-In-The-Sky. Amy wrote the poetry, and Keith did the colourful artwork. They'll be talking about it at the Can-CON SF Conference this weekend, but first they joined us in studio.
