Synopses & Reviews
"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.
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.
