Our Curators said...

Younger and older readers alike will love it. Rocket is into astronomy; her brother is into his phone. This amazing story with its brilliant illustrations reminds us just how much we might miss if we don’t look up. A modern classic!

What the Critics are Saying

Outstanding - a breath of fresh air, just like Rocket herself" - Kirkus Reviews "Energetic and with a wry, sweet take on family dynamics, it will alert readers to the mysteries of the night skies


Nathan Bryon and Dapo Adeola's charming picture book gifts us with a gorgeous character in Rocket, a girl whose passion for all things space is as inspiring to the reader as her heroine Mae Jemison is to her. Adeola has a real talent for portraying expression, from teen Jamal's sulks to Rocket's jubilation at watching the stars. Sprinkled with facts about meteors and space, this charming picture book is also a lovely representation of family, sibling relationships and one girl's infectious enthusiasm
