Rocket Town ~ Kids Book Review
What do little boys like even better than trucks or trains? Rockets!
So goes the tag line for Bob Logan’s newest book, Rocket Town. And it appears to be true in our house! From the day it arrived we have read it no less than twice a day and I think on the first day it was closer to a dozen times.
Logan is a story artist for Dreamworks and his amazing work is showcased in this little book that tells a big story. A man and his dog take a drive in their old pickup truck into Rocket Town. They find all kinds of rockets for every purpose and on the final pages trade in their truck for a truck shaped rocket and “Blast Off” into space.
This book is a masterpiece for boys in my opinion, and probably girls too! It’s not too long and not too short and each page has just a few words to go with the colorful retro illustrations. Most of the rockets have names (my son’s favorite is the “Stinky Onion”) and there are so many fun little details that adults will pick up on too.
Even my one year old, who will hardly sit still for a book, likes this one! And in the last few days I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard my older son counting, “5, 4, 3, 2, 1, Blast Off!” as he races around the house.
I’m so glad we had the opportunity to review this one and it’s going on my short list of gifts for little boys!
Details: Board book, 24 pages, full color illustrations, list price $7.99
