The story follows an astronaut and his canine companion as they drive an old pickup through Rocket Town, passing all manner of space craft like a taxi rocket, a police rocket, a school bus rocket, and even a rocket that looks like a shark. Each colorful spread is bursting with an eye-dazzling array of rockets from big to small, fast to slow, practical to extremely silly. Our intrepid astronaut and his dog then get into their favorite rocket (a pickup truck-shaped rocket of course!), and the final count down and blast off is sure to thrill young readers. Praise for Sea of Bath: “All the elements of a classic picture book, right down to its ‘Can-we-read-it-again?’ potential.” —YABooksCentral.com “Almost as good as a short animated feature.” —Publishers Weekly

“Logan has an original animation style that definitely captures the attention of all ages... Rocket Town is going to be a favorite at our house for quite awhile, and I'd definitely recommend it for other toddlers who want to blast off for some fun.“ - Two Kids and a Coupon
“What if rockets dominated an entire town and every other mode of transportation were converted into a spaceship version of its former self? That is the premise of this richly illustrated offering... In this graphical feast for the eyes, filled with dark concentrated colors and abundant geometric shapes...the protagonist makes his own purchase, leading to the inevitable “10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...BLAST OFF!” Reminiscent of Donald Crews’s vehicle books (HarperCollins), this board book will appeal to young transportation buffs.” –Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT
“ Rocket Town by Bob Logan is one of their favorites and they know all of the words by heart. The illustrations are “out of this world” with all sorts of different rockets including a police rocket, an ice cream rocket, and my kids favorite, the stinky onion rocket. Some are slow, some are fast, some are big and some are small but all of the rockets in Rocket Town are fun and interesting to my kids.” - Mommies With Cents
“Grab a kid and grab a seat!!! You are in for the ride of your life! I would say that this is a great book for houses with boys.. but, quite honestly... This is a great book! Boys and Girls! and Rocket Lovers of all ages!!! The illustration is amazing! The colors! The rockets make me secretly wish we had one to at least play in!” - Jumpin Beans
“This is an adorable board book. My boys and I love the illustrations as they are bright, funky and very kid-friendly. Whether you have a child who likes rockets or not, this is a really cute book and one I recommend!” - Mom and More

“If your child loves to use their imagination (what child doesn't?) than this book will sure entertain everyone who opens it up!” - Life with the Stevens
“Filled with captivating, colorful images... It's an out-of-this-world adventure... While the book is geared toward readers between the ages of 1 and 5, I found this selection to be entertaining for adults, too – so much so that I'm tempted to keep "Rocket Town" for myself.” - OC Family, Inland Empire Family
“Are you on the lookout for new board books to read with your little ones? I am always adding to our collection and was happy to get a copy of Rocket Town! It is a rocket-themed board book done in a beautiful retro-feeling style for your space fans – the illustrations reminded me of a lot of the books I read as a kid... The last few pages are a fun countdown to a blastoff that was a huge hit in our house.“ - BabyRazzi
“This board book is said to be for babies and preschoolers. My two year old and four year old fit the bill, and they enjoyed the book. However, I found this to be a great book for my first grader to read.” - My OKC Mommy
“...my four year old LOVES it! It is an easy to read board book that offers vibrant colors on every page. This is a great book for a beginner reader. As my four year old has been expressing interest in learning to read we turn to this book often!” - As They Grow Up
“This is a very easy read book. As a matter of fact, my 5 year old son, who is in Pre-K and does not yet know how to read, has actually learned to read this book himself! I was so very proud of him, and now he is reading the book to his younger brothers, almost daily! The pages of this book are so alive and colorful! They are exciting and would make any little boys eyes light up and heart fill with excitement!” - Raising My 5 Sons
“From the day it arrived we have read it no less than twice a day and I think on the first day it was closer to a dozen times. Logan is a story artist for Dreamworks and his amazing work is showcased in this little book that tells a big story... This book is a masterpiece for boys in my opinion, and probably girls too! It’s not too long and not too short and each page has just a few words to go with the colorful retro illustrations.” - An Island Life
“...full of high quality artwork, retro looking figures and lines reminiscent of The Fairly OddParents, but with bolder and brighter colors... Rocket Town left me wanting more from Bob Logan. I can't wait to see what delightful world he brings to life next! And neither can the kids. Even though this is a board book, created for ages 1-5, the whole family has enjoyed this book...“ - My Four Monkeys
“...great book...Callan enjoyed it and we looked at it for quite a long time.” - Hanging Off The Wire
“We enjoyed reading this board book – it is very colorful and certainly features a lot of rockets...I liked that I could tell the story based on the pictures and invite kids to imagine what happens on the next street of the rocket town.” - My Busy Children
“Just when I think there is nothing new under the sun in preschool literature, I find the best book in the world for 1 to 5 year olds who love things that go “vroom”.” - Mom Most Traveled
“My Grandson will love the cardboard book 'Rocket Town'...perfect...” - Crazed Mind
“I have girls, no boys, but they sure can hang with the boys! In fact one of mine has a favorite "rocket" at the playground she loves to play in. So, how perfect to read her a book about rockets. This book is really simple as far as words - your basic rocket book with a countdown at the ends. The pictures are so fun to look at - my girls love to look at all of the rockets and townspeople - and the dog of course. And the favorite thing to do is pick a rocket and do the countdown...” - Retail Therapy
