Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Louie's spaceship is made of junk, but all the kids want to go for a ride, in this imaginative adventure. A Reading Rainbow selection. Ages 5-9. (August)
Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
Louie proves that one man's junk is another's treasure in this reissue of a Keats classic. While the other kids snickered, Louie employed his imagination to create a space ship from odds and ends of junk that took him from the confines of his city landscape to the far reaches of outer space. With his pal Susie on board, they looked down on Earth, swung by Saturn, and encountered worlds only they could imagine. Along the way they rescued friends Ziggie and Ruthie in their bathtub ship when their imagination began to falter and they feared being stuck in space forever. Just in time for the fortieth anniversary of man's landing on the moon, this salute to the power of imagination and the wonders of space travel should capture the hearts of a new generation of children. Keats' signature collage and paint illustrations are bright pops of color against the inky blackness of outer space and are filled with all the excitement and wonder such a journey could produce. Reviewer: Beverley Fahey
Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
An imaginative child may be drawn to this book by Ezra Jack Keats, who is famous for his collage-style illustrations and ability to capture the extraordinary nature of the ordinary world. Louie and Susie transform a piece of junk into a spacecraft, travel into space, survive a rock storm, rescue two skeptical friends and return home to inspire other kids to embark on imaginative adventures. 1987 (orig.

Meet the Author

Ezra Jack Keats

Ezra Jack Keats (1916–1983) is the Caldecott Medal winning author of The Snowy Day, which broke ground in 1962 as one of the first picture books for young children to portray a realistic, multi-cultural urban setting. Since its initial publication, The Snowy Day has come to be regarded as both a children’s classic and one of the most important picture books ever written/illustrated. Ezra Jack Keats’ legacy lives on in the popularity of his most famous character, Peter—the star of The Snowy Day, Whistle for Willie, Peter's Chair, A Letter to Amy, Goggles, and others.
