Ralph and the Rocket Ship

Alyssa Satin Capucilli (Author), Henry Cole (Illustrator)

“A rocket ship can take me up to the stars,”
said Ralph.

“A rocket ship can take me to the moon!”

“A rocket ship can take me to planets far, far, away! Zip–zoom–whoosh!”

All Ralph wants is a rocket ship. So he asks his mom for one. “Too big,” she tells him. Ralph asks his dad. “Too tall,” he tells Ralph. What will Ralph do? With a little bit of imagination, a stack! stack!, a bang! bang!, and a tape, tape, tape, tape!, Ralph soon has his rocket ship. And it’s even big enough to fit his good pal Katy Duck, too!
