Publisher's Description

Amazing Machines: Roaring Rockets by Tony Mitton and Ant Parker
 
Rockets have power. They rise and roar. This rocket's waiting, ready to soar. Rockets carry astronauts with cool, white suits oxygen helmets and gravity boots. Blast off with more out-of-this-world couplets! This time it is machines that fly. In bright and bold illustrations that are as witty as the text, the animal crew roars and whizzes into outer space.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Informational books don't have to be boring, and this book is a good example of one that is well done...Children will delight in the word play as they join a trio of wacky animals as they blast off into space.
