Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Hynes-Berry
Blast Off is one of a series of colorful tales for young children clearly meant to teach a lesson. In this case, six stuffed toys find an empty spaceship and set up a competition to see which one has the right stuff to blast off. Emily Elephant, Jim Giraffe, Patricia Pig, Henry Horse and Chickadoodle all get ruled out. Lenny Lion, Barney Bulldog, Martha Monkey do not make the cut either. So that leaves Rocco Rabbit as the Astro-bunny. Just in case there is any question as to what the moral is, the book ends with a page for parents and teachers spelling out that the story encourages alliteration. The illustrations are bright and colorful but in the end are as predictable and insubstantial as the storyline. "Storytime Series." Reviewer: Mary Hynes-Berry
