Retired NASA astronaut Danny Olivas has written a book.
Olivas' children's book, "Endeavor's Long Journey," a story about a boy named Jojo who explores space, will be officially released in May.

The 36-page illustrated book also features photos from NASA, quizzes and fun facts.

And Olivas is planning to write a series of children's books on other space shuttle missions. Sounds like it could be an interesting series.

On the subject of an on-going series, Olivas says his next book will be about Discovery, to be followed by Challenger and Columbia.
