Book review: Rocket Town by Bob Logan

I am a book lover & so as a result my house is filled with books, mostly children books. Now because I have so many books I am more particular about the ones I let come into my home. When I heard about Rocket Town, I was thrilled to read it.

Here’s some info on Rocket Town:
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.

Published by Sourcebooks, this book was just a delight to read.  

My sons and I were mesmerized by the colorful pages and beautiful designs. It was just a joy to look at. I enjoyed the simple pleasures of this story. My son asks to read it every nap & bedtime, he finds something new to admire each time we read it. He absolutely loves this book. And the hard cover & size is just perfect for his hands.

A bit about the Author & 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. 

This is just a perfect gift for a little boy, and the price is pretty good too.

*I was not paid or compensated, however I was given a copy of Rocket Town to facilitate this review.
