About Book

Book Description
Long before Richard Scarry or Dr. Seuss, an American artist delighted a generation of children and their parents with hilarious, topsy-turvy illustrations and slightly subversive tales told in rhyme. This was illustrator/author Peter Newell. Working over eighty years ago, Newell remains as profoundly enjoyable-and incredibly popular-as ever. Tuttle is proud to be reissuing his three classic works, sure to delight the young and old alike.

The Rocket Book Meet Algernon Bracket and Orlando Pease. Find out how a rocket launched from the basement floor of an apartment building is sure to interrupt a person's day.

Card catalog description
The upward progress of a rocket, lit in the basement by the janitor's son, causes some strange situations as it passes through twenty floors of apartments.

About the Author
Peter Newell (1862-1924) began his career painting portraits, using crayons as a medium, before turning to children's book. Besides his own books, Newell illustrated Mark Twain's Innocents Abroad and Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.
