Board Book Rocket Town Review & Giveaway CLOSED

Rocket Town

by Bob Logan

What do little boys like even better than trucks or trains? Rockets!

In this fun departure from the traditional board book themes for boys, Bob Logan’s Rocket Town tells the story of an astronaut and his canine companion as they drive an old pickup through Rocket Town—an amazing town filled with, yes, rockets!

Each colorful spread sports an eye-dazzling array of rockets, from big to small, fast to slow, practical to extremely silly—a taxi rocket, a police rocket, a school bus rocket, and even a rocket that looks like a shark! The final pages are a countdown to blastoff that is sure to thrill young readers.

Author and illustrator Bob Logan has worked as a story artist on feature animations such as Madagascar and Open Season, as well as Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and is currently working on the upcoming Puss in Boots! Logan’s picture book, The Sea of Bath, charmed readers with fun and sweet illustrations, and Rocket Town will delight parents and children alike with colorful and imaginative rockets. The Pasadena Star News called it “…a blast for children ages 1 – 5… Simple text and retro-pop illustrations make the journey one kids (and parents) will want to take again and again.”

Boys will be boys, and boys love rockets.   This book was a hit with all THREE of my boys and that isn’t necessarily an easy task.  The book is short in length and short on words, which is perfect for my 19 month old.  My three and 1/2 year old loves the illustrations and went wild when he saw the shark rocket.  And even my six year old, who can read the book himself, is drawn in by the illustrations.  If I am reading the book to one of his younger brothers he will work his way over to listen too.  Like almost all board books the story is very simple and mostly compares and contrasts rockets.  The real gem of this book is the illustrations.  My boys LOVE well illustrated books and Rocket Town has them studying each page.  Take a look!

Rocket Town is available at Amazon for $7.99
