Rickety Rocket is another fabulous offering from the Early Readers Series White Band from Maverick Books. This is a fantastic tale of friendship, determination and resilience.
Spacey Stacey’s rocket is old and rickety. She really wants to buy a super snazzy new one but doesn’t have any money. Her friends convince her to enter the Space Race to win enough money to buy the rocket of her dreams. With some help from her friends Zip, Zap, Moondoodle and Timble, will Stacey be able to realise her dream? Find out in this cleverly written, boldly illustrated chapter book for more confident readers which is proving to be very popular in my Year 4 class.
Mahdi, age 8 had this to say about Rickety Rocket:
Stacey had bullies who always picked on her and made fun of her old rocket. She felt bad but in the end she proves that bullies never win. I really liked this book and wish I had a rocket like Stacey’s.
