Wheresthe Rocket Cvr Rgb

Where is the Rocket?

A little orange rocket with one little passenger inside takes off across the pages of this fulsomely unique book, exploring spatial relationships, opposites, and words related to distance, placement, and comparison.

See the rocket soar up to the left and down to the right. "What's on your left? What's on your right?" asks the text. Watch the rocket fly over the head and under the snout of a grinning alligator and across a spinning planet in the middle of the book.

"Where to next?" Turn the page, turn the page!

A voyage of imagination, as well as a clever expression of language arts, Where Is the Rocket? invites readers along for a soaring ride.

The celebrated creative team of author Harriet Ziefert and artist Barroux has been lauded for their "hand in glove," "complementary" duet of prose and pictures in such books as My Dog Thinks I'm a Genius, Bunny's Lessons, and It's Time to Say Goodnight.
