Curiosity on Mars
Red Rover is a gorgeously illustrated tale that explores the vast, inhospitable landscape of Mars and the adventures of the little rover that calls the planet its home.

It likes to roam...
It explores the red landscape—
crossing plains, climbing hills,
and tracing the bottoms of
craters—in search of water
It is not the first to visit Mars.
It will not be the last.
But it might be...
the most curious.
