Fly to the stars in your very own rocket ship. Wave at the mean, green Martians. Picnic with Moon Men. Play tag with the comets. Win a blue ribbon space race. Just before your bedtime. Inspired by the palette of Vincent van Gogh, let's go on a colorful space journey as we explore the colors and planets in our solar system through the power and wonder of a child's whimsical imagination.

Would you listen to Zwoosh! again? Why?

It's an imaginative story told with warmth, vibrancy and infectious joy. The writing is vivid and easy to imagine. It takes you into this child's world immediately. I would definitely play it for and recommend it to the children in my life. I would actually listen to it for myself as a sort of escape back to my best childhood memories.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Zwoosh!?

The facts about planets and moons were weaved into the story in a way that were exciting and memorable.

What does Marie Rose bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brings a depth and warmth that you can't get otherwise, like listening to a loving mother reading to her child. She sounds like she's enjoying the story and it translates to the listener through the inflections and joyful quality. You can somehow hear her smiling.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I loved the little details about the child's real world that, to me, gives him the life and freedom to have such a wonderful imagination.

Any additional comments?

This is a special book. The story paints a picture of a very loved child.
