The talented author and visual artist, who plans to be a rocket ship designer/engineer when she grows up, takes readers on an adventurous journey through the solar system aboard her red, white and purple rocket. She brings the sun, nearby planets, moon, and even a black hole to life with insightful facts and original artwork.
