On the front cover is a roaring rocket, zooming through space. It's a white cylinder shape with a grey, pointed nose cone and three, large round windows. On board and looking through each window are a white mouse, a brown rabbit and a big, green bird.
Space is dark blue, with lots of white, twinkling stars. Across the top of the page the title is written in yellow and red letters. You can read it in Braille down the left-hand side of the book. Are you looking forward to finding out where the animals are going? Let's get started and roar off with the rocket! Turn over to your first feely picture.
Trace over the feely picture with both hands. Can you feel the Moon in the top left-hand corner?
- A picture book with braille pages and raised tactile images.
