Apollo the Spacedog is an original children’s book created by Sylvamo in collaboration with illustrator Kyle Beckett. This adventure story introduces young readers to Apollo, a shelter dog who longs to find a home, and Andi, a 7-year-old girl who’s into astronomy — two daring characters who team up to outrun a space monster. Apollo the Spacedog gives readers a glimpse of Andi’s vivid imagination, with action scenes brought to life through the magic of augmented reality.
Upon the publication of Apollo the Spacedog, Sylvamo worked with local schools and literacy partners to connect kids with dogs that were up for adoption at the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County. By reading aloud at the shelter, the kids were able to practice their reading skills in a fun, low-stakes environment while also helping to socialize the dogs and make them more adoptable.
