Romeo and Lou Blast Off

By Derek Anderson; Derek Anderson (Illustrator)

Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers, Hardcover, 9781416937845, 32pp.

Publication Date: November 6, 2007


Romeo the penguin and Lou the bear are what they call polar opposites.

But one snowy, blowy day they agree to build a pretend rocket ship made entirely out of snow.

Romeo rolled.

And Lou pushed.

Romeo patted.

And Lou smooshed.

Fasten your seat belts!

When a shooting star passes over the rocket ship, two best friends are carried off to a strange new world. And the real question is: How will they ever get home?

Let your imagination blast off with celebrated storyteller Derek Anderson on an unforgettable winter's night journey.
