Synopsis

Roaring Rockets by Tony Mitton

Zoom to the moon with a trio of animal astronauts in this lively picture book. Readers are invited along on a lunar expedition - and will learn about space exploration from blast off to splash down. With zippy rhyming text and bright, bold artwork, this book will delight pre-schoolers. An audio CD attached to the inside back cover allows children to listen to the story and follow along with page turn cues. This popular picture book series makes learning about vehicles more fun than ever before. Each of the Amazing Machines picture books features lively rhyming text and bold, bright pictures of fun animal characters. A picture dictionary at the back of every book helps build vocabulary. Four Amazing Machines with CD will be published in June 2007, and a further six titles will be published in October 2007.
