Rocket Town by Bob Logan (children's book review)

Rocket TownBob Logan is a genius illustrator who has previously contributed his talent as a story artist on such features as Madagascar, Open Season and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.  He has also lent his brilliance to a first book, the picture book, The Sea of Bath.

In Rocket Town, Logan uses gorgeous, full page illustrations to tell a simple tale of a man who decides to take a rocket trip with his dog.  The words are simple and give basic opposites in small sentences.  There is not much story to this board book, but children could spend HOURS pouring over the pictures.  They are highly detailed, creative and illicit great imagination in your kids.  My son is 3 and LOVED it.  My daughter is 5 and liked the pictures, but was not that interested in it otherwise. 

This would make an excellent addition to your child's Easter basket!  (Or reward them for good behavior!)

MOTR Grade: A (but only for ages 3 and under.  I don't think it will excite older kids that much.)
