Superstar Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield has a picture book in the works. It's his first book for young readers, and he is looking to his own childhood for inspiration.
The book, titled The Darkest Dark, is a collaboration between Hadfield and Toronto-based writer Kate Fillion. It will be illustrated by brothers Eric and Terry Fan.
"The Darkest Dark, which was inspired by a career-defining moment in Chris's childhood, is a universal story about facing your fears and following your dreams," said Penguin Random House Canada Children's Group publisher Tara Walker in a press release.
The Darkest Dark is scheduled to be released in fall 2016. It will be published in Canada by Tundra Books, a division of Penguin Random House Canada.
