A young girl imagines herself traveling to and living on Mars. She knows that the journey will be difficult, but is willing to work for the things she'll be able to do.
Welcome to I Want to go to Mars, an illustrated children's book which describes, in realistic terms, what life on Mars would be like for a member of the expedition who happens to be a child. Technical pages at the end of the book describe some of the finer points of the images and story, for more advanced readers or parents.
I Want to go to Mars is the first collaborative work between Tom Hill and Marilyn "Marf" Glass. Tom wrote the text, while Marilyn brought the story to life with her illustrations.
This website gives insight to the book, the story, and the authors.
