What Inspired the Author?
Loredana Cunti is the author of five inspirational children’s books including KARATE KAKAPO, TO BURP OR NOT TO BURP: A GUIDE TO YOUR BODY IN SPACE; GO FOR LIFTOFF!: HOW TO TRAIN LIKE AN ASTRONAUT, DESTINATION: SPACE: LIVING ON OTHER PLANETS; and MIGHTY MISSION MACHINES: FROM ROCKETS TO ROVERS.
Loredana’s four-part series on space written with Astronaut Dave Williams was inspired by her own childrens’ curiosity about space and what it takes to be an astronaut. Each book in the out-of-this-world series answers questions in an engaging, informative way and is geared towards children ages 7 to 11.

KARATE KAKAPO was inspired by Loredana’s children who overcame obstacles during soccer and karate practice, and the lessons Loredana wants to instill in the next generation of young readers ages 3 to 8 – and any age! This book teaches children about perseverance, optimism and will, and how goals are achievable through hard work and determination. Fun fact: Loredana looked at many flightless birds as she was developing the concept for KARATE KAKAPO. After doing some research on the Cassowary, the Kiwis and the Kakapos, Karate Kakapo was born.
