A Journey Through Space
Space, Carter told Space. Since he had already written books about his other favorite topics — wolves and electric guitars — the "big expanse up there" was the obvious frontier to conquer next, he said. But Carter wanted to direct his next effort at a younger audience than he did with the aforementioned volumes, making use of simple rhyming verse instead of "heavy scientific detail" to captivate and entertain. As the author of more than 20 poetry books for children, writing what amounted to an extended poem came naturally, he said. Plus, I'm attracted to poetry's playfulness, brevity, imagery, its 'less is more,' its musicality with its rhythms, rhymes and repetitions. Not that he did away with the "sciency stuff" entirely, of course. Carter ends the book with an acrostic poem that supplies a light sprinkling of those "figures, numbers and facts.
Journey into Space is a British science fiction novel by Toby Litt about people living on a generation ship which is bound for another planet. It was Litt's tenth novel and was published by Penguin Books. The novel is situated on board of the UNSS Armenia , a generation ship which is traveling from the Earth to a far away planet,  where humanity is to establish a new civilisation. Because of the vast distance involved, the journey will span the lives of many generations. Apart from the generation which began the journey, and the generation which might end it, most generations will live and die on the ship. But when a child named Orphan is illicitly born from two lovers named August and Celeste, the ship's mission is turned upside down.
