Christina Larkins is an illustrator who loves to make pictures and books for kids, so much so that she does it for a living, too. In her tiny east coast studio, she combines her scritchy-scratchy drawings with a bit of digital voodoo and lots of love. Someday she hopes to tell a knock-knock joke that actually makes someone chuckle.
"Good day, friends. It's Sun! Can you guess how old I am? 4.6 billion years old. Of the billions of stars in the Milky Way, I'm an average-size star, but I'm the largest character in our solar system—the size of more than 1 million planet Earths. And did you know that at my core, I can reach more than 27 million degrees? Yeah, I'm pretty hot!"
"Good evening, I am Moon. I am about a billion years younger than Sun (but a girl never reveals her age). There are a few theories floating around in space about how I was formed but I like to tell it this way: Picture Earth as one big, delicious MoonPie—yum! After a rock named Theia smashed into Earth, Gravity took all of her crumbs and bound them together to create me."
"Hello, I am Cloud. I was formed when warm air (thanks to Sun) rose up from Earth, cooled, and turned into ice crystals—yes, ice crystals! I admit, sometimes I can be cold, especially when Wind blows by (he's pushy!), or when Lightning flashes out of nowhere (she's fierce!)...but for the most part, I can handle the pressure. I am happiest when I am puffy and playing with my best friend Sun."
"While Sun is closest to Earth, I am closest to Moon. In fact, Moon and I are BFFs. I am one of billions of stars in the Milky Way, but Moon makes me feel like I'm one of a kind. When I'm sad, she sings: "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" and I shine bright! But it takes millions of years for my light to reach Earth, so when you see me in the sky, you are actually looking back in time!"
