Sadie Sprocket is ready to soar!

Sadie Sprocket is a girl with a big dream--to go to Mars! No one has been to Mars (yet!), so of course that's where Sadie sets her sights. She learns everything she can about the planet and space, then assembles her crew of trusty stuffed animals. Together they build a rocket and prepare for the historic journey. And then finally--blastoff!

Sadie and her team make it to Mars, but what will they encounter when they leave the ship? And will they travel home safely as the world watches?

With cheery rhyming text and quirky artwork, this is a story about dreaming big and reaching for the stars. The book includes facts about Mars and women in space to inspire budding explorers everywhere.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this STEM-focused tale of pretend, Sadie is determined to be the first person to land on Mars. She assembles her crew--an animate stuffed rabbit, owl, and bear--and with their help and some junkyard scavenging, builds a blastoff-worthy rocket ship outside. Fliess's (Flash and Gleam) lighthearted quatrain text clearly delineates what's required of a leader: Sadie keeps the crew motivated ("She knew it would be tough./ But Sadie kept their spirits up./ 'We'll be there soon enough!'‚ÄČ"), and she shows tenacity and ingenuity in the face of a Martian sandstorm and a grounded ship. Bright and bouncy colors underscore the spirit of adventure, and Tempest's (the Babylit series) cartooned drawings have a freewheeling spontaneity that's well suited to the idea of Sadie going where her mind takes her. Back matter contributes facts about Mars and women in space. Ages 3--7. Author's agent: Jennifer Unter, the Unter Agency. Illustrator's agent: James Burns, the Bright Agency. (Feb.)"
