This children’s book, written by real-life rocket scientist Milinda Suraweera — who I met while working on a design for a space satellite — follows the adventures of Tom, a lion cub who gets swept out to sea in a teacup.

Tom in a Teacup is available in softcover and Kindle editions on Amazon.

Each lower right page corner has a small illustration of Tom on it. When the pages are flipped, it plays a short animation of Tom riding the waves in his teacup.

The book also contains an easter egg subplot featuring a pair of bugs looking for each other:
