The Rocket Book is Peter Newell's second work that has been reprinted in less than two years.Reseña del editor:
"When Fritz, the Janitor's bad kid, Went snooping in the basement, He found a rock snugly hidBeneath the window casement. He struck a match with one fell swoop;Then, on the concrete kneeling, he lit the rocket and--she--oop!It shot up through the ceiling." 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. Originally published in 1912, The Rocket Book remains as profoundly enjoyable and incredibly popular as ever. This classic work will delight readers of all ages with the story of how a rocket launched from the basement floor of an apartment building and how it interrupts the day. Peter Newell (1862-1924) began his career as an artist drawing portraits, using crayons as his medium. In his fantastic humor, many believe, is the first appearance of the gentle humor of the absurd which The New Yorker has subsequently developed to such a high level.
