Books: Rocket Town Is A Blast


Rocket Town is a sophisticated board book for all ages. The drawings are “hip”, modern and highly stylized.. and no wonder, the author Bob Logan is a Dreamworks story artist who has worked on Madagascar and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs.

The story tells of an astronaut and his canine companion driving through their pickup through Rocket Town. There’s so much to see too. Very colorful rockets come alive…big ones, small ones, and one even shaped like a shark.

The only thing I have to say is that I wish the yellow pickup truck was more noticeable in the pages. There’s so much detail that I feel it sort of gets lost. However, I do love the imagination of it all and recommend it as a fun book to get as a gift.

Published by Sourcebooks Jabberwocky, this board book retails for $7.99.
