About This Rock, That Rock by Dom Conlon

“Words and pictures that are quite simply out of this world! I love this book!” — Chris Riddell

“Strap yourself in, set the rocket turbo-boosters to max, and prepare for lift-off. Dom Conlon & Viviane Schwarz’s This Rock, That Rock will take you on an exhilarating, out-of-this-world poetic journey to the moon and back. Along the way, you’ll explore not only the mysteries of space but those of the human heart, too, with this collection of 50 life-affirming poems that show us how nothing – not even the moon itself – lies beyond our reach.” — Brian Bilston
