by Dawn IusSure people have walked on the moon—but have they tried to grow canola on Mars?
Inspired by the CanoLab project, in which Canadian astronaut Robert Thirsk took 250,000 canola seeds into space to determine the effects of anti-gravity on plant growth, Chase explores three climates to determine the best conditions for growing canola. But which planet will have the best crop? Chase meets with three “out of this world” farmers to find out.
The Chase “Superman” Duffy graphic novels chronicle the adventures of a young track and field athlete as he navigates his way around his grandfather’s Alberta farm to learn about rapeseed, canola, the transition from one seed to another, and the innovators behind the country’s only true Canadian-made crop.
Written and illustrated for 8 to 11-year-olds, the stories are part historical fact, part fantasy, relying on a child’s belief in “perhaps.”
