Are you an Alien? by Felicity Rawlinson

Thu 4 April 2019

Gabriel is a curious young boy from earth who makes a rocket ship and flies into outer space in search of aliens. He meets different creatures on all the planets in the solar system, and also learns about perspective. 

Felicity Rawlinson is an author and mum of four who lives on a 16-acre property with a menagerie of rescue animals. She began working with children with learning disabilities after her eldest child was diagnosed with autism. Following the birth of her fourth child, she became a stay-at-home-mum and followed her passion of writing children’s books. 

Originally from New Zealand, Karen Mounsey-Smith is an illustrator and designer who could draw as soon as she could hold a pencil. Now based in Brisbane with her husband, two kids and two fluffy cats, she illustrates children's books and educational resources for kids.
