Join science-mad chatterbox Rocket and learn about Mae Jemison, the first African-American woman in space…

Every child has a dream – they want to be ballet dancers, football players, vets, pop stars…

Rocket, star of Look Up! by Nathan Bryon and Dapo Adeola, wants to be an astronaut more than anything in the world (and the solar system).

Named after “the rocket that blasted off into space” on the day she was born, Rocket now wants to live up to this name and be the greatest astronaut who ever lived.

This story follows the aspirations of a very passionate and tenacious little girl who is desperate to follow in the footsteps of Mae Jemison, the first African-American woman in space.

Before Rocket can achieve her ultimate goal of becoming the next black female astronaut, she’s determined to make her phone-obsessed big brother, and the rest of her community, look up to admire the impending meteor shower.

This title won Waterstones Children’s Book Of The Year and will entertain and enthuse young readers with its thoughtful, bold, bright illustrations and charming protagonist.

Children will root for Rocket and join in with her as they ardently shout, “Look up!”
