Lulu Junior Author of the Month – Jeremiah Karashchuk
We’ve made it to one of the most beautiful times of the year! We’ve jumped on it and got our places decorated for fall and we’re ready for all the spooky season vibes too. Why not kick off October with a great story about an astronaut and his space adventure! Our awesome featured author is Jeremiah Karashchuk who wrote: “William Went Into Space.”
Let’s get right into Jeremiah’s story!
William dreamed of being an astronaut. He decided he was going to build a rocket but realized he didn’t have all the pieces that he needed. So he asked his dad for help.
They worked and worked and late one night they finally finished building the rocket. William put on his astronaut outfit got into the rocket and blasted off! But to his surprise, he saw something that he was not expecting!
What exactly did he see? William saw Mars and its moons. At the same time, there was an asteroid coming right at the rocket. Thankfully, he was able to escape it and was able to land safely on Mars.
As he explored the planet, he came across a dark cave and went inside. He jumped over puddles and escaped bats that were in the cave to find a narrow path. This narrow path led him straight to a diamond treasure!
He started digging into the ground but all he found was three diamonds...suddenly everything began to shake. The walls even began to crack. William ran out of the cave and tried to go find his rocket as he had walked all over Mars on his journey. He finally found it and flew back to Earth where he was safe and sound with his treasure.
His dream was to visit every single planet in the solar system!
William tried to decide where to go on his next adventure. He thought about Venus and decided it was too hot. Then, he thought about Jupiter but his rocket wouldn’t have enough fuel to make it there.
We are just going to have to wait and see which planet William decides to visit next.
