Includes an audiobook, free when you download this edition!
Eight year old Sascha Martin is always inventing things, so he knows how they work. Mostly. For class news time he brings in a rocket that towers over everyone, including the teacher … but he's written "Don't touch!" on it, so what could possibly go wrong?
"The story is 'poetry in motion' for rocket ships! Manuela Pentangelo has visually interpreted John's verse with all the best icons from rocketry and science in the gorgeous illustrations." Samantha Ridgway, scientist, mother, and record-holding Australian rocketeer.
This children’s picture book is ideal for kids aged 8-10, but readers of all ages, from beginners to preteens to adults, will love this wild, funny, deliciously silly adventure wrapped in rhyming verse and Manuela Pentangelo’s beautiful full colour artwork. And should your own voice falter from reading Sascha Martin's Rocket-Ship aloud, you’ll find a link to the free audiobook inside.
"Delightful, rhyming story that keeps your fingers turning the pages." E. C. Kraeft, author of White Castle (Book One in her children’s book series Elf Kingdoms).
"I am the mother to an energetic young reader that loves all things books. I am constantly looking for new titles that we can read together and I believe I have struck gold with this one! … I was pleasantly surprised to discover the book rhymed throughout (we love rhymes!) and I must add that they are very well done! This book does a great job at turning an already fun story into one that you can practically sing together (which does wonders with a toddler!!)." Thomai Dion, author of the Think-a-Lot Tots early science readers.
Sascha Martin's Rocket-Ship is the first in a fun new series of children’s science fiction action and adventure books, about a kid who knows just enough to be really, really dangerous!
Keep an eye out for Sascha Martin’s Time Machine, the second book in the series, in eBooks and print, and a surprisingly interactive Kindle edition.
“It’s scary fun!” Luca Blanco, Sascha Martin’s best friend.
