Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Originally self-published by the author in 2007, Logan's story, set in a futuristic-meets-retro world, follows a man and his dog as they drive a yellow pickup truck through Rocket Town, where they encounter rockets of all kinds, which are used to demonstrate antonyms. Commuters travel in a 'big rocket,' and a baby rides in a small toy rocket; families watch 'rockets go up' in a park, while another group comes back down with help from parachutes. Minimal text keeps the focus on Logan's '50s-era vision of the future, where waitresses on hover-skates deliver burgers and shakes, and school buses, ice cream trucks, and even sharks get rocket makeovers. Readers ought to have a blast. Ages 1 — up. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

The story follows an astronaut and his canine companion as they drive an old pickup through Rocket Town, passing all manner of space craft like a taxi rocket, a police rocket, a school bus rocket, and even a rocket that looks like a shark.

Each colorful spread is bursting with an eye-dazzling array of rockets from big to small, fast to slow, practical to extremely silly. Our intrepid astronaut and his dog then get into their favorite rocket (a pickup truck-shaped rocket of course ), and the final count down and blast off is sure to thrill young readers.

Praise for Sea of Bath:

All the elements of a classic picture book, right down to its 'Can-we-read-it-again?' potential. -YABooksCentral.com

Almost as good as a short animated feature.
