We’re going to share a brilliant story about a little girl called Rocket. When Rocket discovers the animals that she loves are in terrible danger she decides to help them.
Now let’s explore Rocket who’s at the front of the surfboard on the right. She has brown skin and curly, brown hair. Start at the top of her head, her hair is being swept behind in the breeze.
Rocket has a lovely room, she has a very grown up desk and her own computer. A pair of roller skates are tucked beneath the comfy bed which is covered with a warm, blue blanket and her favourite toy a spotted, smiley octopus is on her bed waiting to snuggle up with her. A pink, evening sky glows above the calm sea and they must have arrived at this faraway island because in this double page picture there are palm trees and lots of golden sand. And weren’t Rocket and her Grampy superheroes, they cleaned up all that rubbish so quickly! It just shows what we can do if you work together as a team.
