Description
The #1 "New York Times" Bestseller
This irresistible sequel to the "New York Times" bestselling "How Rocket Learned to Read" is "a perfect choice to inspire new readers and writers," according to a starred review from "Kirkus Reviews."
Rocket loves books and he wants to make his own, but he can't think of a story. Encouraged by the little yellow bird to look closely at the world around him for inspiration, Rocket sets out on a journey. Along the way he discovers small details that he has never noticed before, a timid baby owl who becomes his friend, and an idea for a story. Declared a best children's book of the year by Amazon, Barnes & Noble, "School Library Journal," and "Publishers Weekly," this book is sure to appeal to kids, parents, teachers, and librarians.
