Are you ready to explore? 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 . . .
Rocket through the solar system in this funny, fact-filled whirl around the planets. Join two junior astronauts as they discover what makes each planet unique and what might happen if you were to get too close. 'You couldn't land on Mercury - the heat would burn your bum!'
Written in rollicking verse and beautifully illustrated, Blast Off is an enticing mix of narrative and information. The story is perfectly pitched for preschool and early primary school children who are brimming with curiosity about the world around them, while bonus fact pages add a little extra depth for children (and adults) who want to know more.

My grandson and I love this book. It is written in rhyme making it great fun to read out loud and it introduces some great facts about each of the planets in a really fun and engaging way. As he's got older he's also started to really get into the fun fact section at the back too.
