Rocket Beams, Lunar Dreams

Illustrated by Scott Magoon

A follow-up to Rocket Ship, Solo Trip, exploring the complicated emotions around building friendships and overcoming disappointment, with art from New York Times bestselling illustrator Scott Magoon!

Rocket ship. Lunar trip.
Such excitement on the strip.
Launchpad’s ready. Clouds, at bay.
She’s going to the moon today!

After embarking on her first solo mission to place a satellite into orbit, Rocket is back, and she’s headed on a lunar expedition! But this time she’s not going alone. Instead of exploring, Rocket’s mission is to drop off the spacecraft, Lander, and then return to Earth while Lander investigates the Moon’s surface.

Rocket can’t seem to muster up any friendly words on their journey into orbit—the Moon is big! Why can’t they share?! But when she learns that Lander is afraid of heights and needs a helping hand, Rocket decides to put aside her disappointment and help Lander accomplish his goal.

With delightful rhyming stanzas and pictures by New York Times bestselling illustrator Scott Magoon, Rocket Beams, Lunar Dreams explores the complicated emotions around overcoming fears, forging friendships, and making peace with the fact that things don’t always turn out as expected.

A Note from Chiara

There's a whole bunch of me in this one, though it might not look that way on the (cratered) surface. More details soon!
