Who are the Zoonauts?
David Simons created the Zoonauts who are based on some famous zoo animals and other animals that went into space with the international space programs. These Zoonauts have extraordinary talents and powers. Their travels take them to different continents and cultures.
Readers will be entertained and educated by the exciting adventures of the Zoonauts, which include NASA's Chimpanzee "Ham," the Australian Koala "Cough Drop" of the San Diego Zoo, "Patty Cake" the Gorilla of the Central Park and Bronx Zoos, the famous Pandas "Hsing-Hsing" and "Ling-Ling" of the National Zoo, and the Russian space dog, "Laika."
Fishwick and Kornblend are Amadorian dragon-like scout pilots on an assigned mission in search of Zoonauts who they hope to capture and bring back to Amador.
The Amadorians provide comic relief in this high-flying, science fiction adventure where good triumphs over evil.
The story of the Zoonauts is a great addition to Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math (STEM) programs that stimulates creativity.
