'Rocket to the Moon' by Lerryn Korda


"How do you get to the moon, Lester?" asks Little Nye. He can’t get there by jumping! He needs to go in a rocket. Stacking pots and pans, pails and umbrellas works very well, until he adds the engine and, “oh no!” The whole ship tumbles down. But Nella and Gracie join in, donning clever homemade space helmets, and soon they’re ready for liftoff. Meet four friends on a magical rocket trip to the moon.
