Mr Tanner the farmer pollutes his farm and mistreats his animals, leading them to stage a rebellion. They build an intergalactic space rocket to take them up into the clean, clear skies, far away from those who are polluting the planet. First a chicken, then a clever rabbit, and lastly a calm sheep, are chosen for test flights. But each time something goes wrong and the rocket returns to Earth. The animals don't know what to do. But then Farmer Tanner discovers the rocket and, determined to take it for his own, he zooms off into space, and is never seen again.

Created in consultation with literacy specialist, Prue Goodwin, this edition contains the complete story, re-designed to help support children who are gaining confidence in reading.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A sophisticated story with an important message lies at the heart of this deliciously entertaining book.'


' a riotously funny take on a deadly serious issue.' 'Taylor's text packs a powerful punch disguised as a whole lot of fun, whilst Shaw's illustrations are just a delight... a tremendous book .'


'It's fun and lively with a wonderful cast of animals all shown well through the action-packed illustrations.'


'Highly entertaining'

'It's fun and lively with a wonderful cast of animals all shown well through the action-packed illustrations.'

'A sophisticated story with an important message lies at the heart of this deliciously entertaining book.'

' a riotously funny take on a deadly serious issue.' 'Taylor's text packs a powerful punch disguised as a whole lot of fun, whilst Shaw's illustrations are just a delight... a tremendous book .'

'the whole thing is hilarious and Hannah Shaw's madcap illustrations with their attention to delicious detail are the ideal match for Taylor's timely tale. With its wacky way of getting across the pollution message this one will assuredly appeal.'

'A marvellously bright and funny picture book featuring farm animals and an intergalactic space rocket!'

'This lovely picture book by Sean Taylor and Hannah Shaw has lots of appealing factors for young readers - animals, a space rocket and a good dose of humour. In addition, there's a strong environmental message.'

There's a message here, of course, but it's delivered with a smile and panache. Hannah Shaw's cartoon illustrations follow the pattern of Sean Taylor's narrative, relishing its absurdity and respecting its intent, and richly develop it with colour, character and humour.'

`books your children will love'

`hilarious'

'An excellent book both from the illustrations, which fill every page with colour and humour, and the story, which is simple and silly but so very poignant in its message.'

`This is a zany, fun story that had the three little readers I tried it on hooting with laughter and joining in. The text sparkles with naughtiness and the comic book drawings more than do it justice. I loved the bold primary colours and the quirky angles of beaks and noses. The ending has a satisfying twist in the tail and, like all good pictures, leaves the reader wanting more. . . A must for all bookshelves!'
