The Adventures of Billy Butler: Billy the Astronaut

The Adventures of Billy Butler: Billy the Astronaut

by Dave Goodenough | Illustrated by Ira V. Gates

Billy Butler is a regular boy with an over-protective brother and a busy mom—except when he’s Captain Billy, a space-traveling astronaut!

When Billy’s important mission to Mars is almost cancelled, Billy must use his smarts—and a little help from his new friends—to save the mission and a Martian moon. Join Billy on an adventure filled with talking hats, strange creatures, magical rings, and a queen unlike anyone Billy’s ever met.

Billy the Astronaut is a fun-filled blast with science, magic, and laughter for the whole family.
