#GIVEAWAY: Rocket Town Book - Great For Your Kids! (Review)

Boys and their toys! And all boys love to see real or fantasy toys in books and these books can become favorites, especially if these books are straight to the point, are fun and easy to read! 

Rocket Town is such a book. 
It's filled with delightful rockets of all sizes and shapes and easy to read story lines and yes you can shout 'BLAST OFF!!" at the end! :) 

My son (and daughter) loves this book and the boy now wants to make these rockets. Soon he might just want one for his birthday! 
He loves when I read it to him because I try to make silly noises as rockets do and then we all shout 'BLAST OFF!' at the end! 

He also loves reading by himself and to his sister. He is only five years old. I just love when he does this sweet thing. He gobbles books! 

About the book: 
What do little boys like even better than trucks or trains? Rockets!
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.

Author and 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.
About the Author
Bob Logan grew up in Baltimore, MD, selling his Star Wars drawings for kids’ milk money to buy books at the Scholastic fair. He studied animation at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. Most recently Bob has worked as a story artist on feature animations, including Madagascar, Open Season, and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. He lives in Thousand Oaks, CA, and enjoys spending time with his wife, son, and two pugs.  Bob is addicted to all of the LEGO games on the Wii, but enjoys them best when he plays with his son.
