by Joan Anderson & George Ancona
One hot summer evening, Richie Rodriquez climbs aboard his cardboard spaceship, grabs hold of his steering wheel, and--boom!--he and his little rocket blast off into outer space.
You can, too, in Richie's Rocket. The energized text and innovative, you-are-there photographs--hand tinted to capture the other-worldly glow of outer space--let you share the sights and sensations of a real space flight. You'll float weightless as a helium balloon, gaze at a beachball-sized Earth far beneath you, and bounce like a kangaroo on the pockmarked surface of the moon.
So buckle up your seat belt, adjust your headphones--and count down to an exhilarating adventure that is out of this world!
