Join Little Nye and his friends in a new picture book celebrating imaginative play in simple stories and fresh illustrations with a fun, retro feel.

"How do you get to the moon, Lester?" asks Little Nye. He can’t get there by jumping—he needs to go in a rocket. Stacking pots and pans, pails and umbrellas works very well, until he adds the engine, and—oh no!—it all tumbles down. But Nella and Gracie join in, donning clever homemade space helmets, and soon they’re ready for lift-off; four friends on a magical rocket trip to the moon.
