Craig and his friends have a big secret—they’ve built a real, working rocket. But will the countdown to takeoff begin before they’re discovered? Best friends Craig, Steve, Johnny, and Phil have spent months building a rocket—not some model or a toy, but a real rocket, with boosters and a launch pad and a remote control panel. Even better, they’ve managed to pull off the whole project in secret. The boys can’t wait to launch their rocket . . . but then their parents find out what they’ve been up to and tell the police. When they see how sophisticated the rocket really is, the police insist on inspecting all the blueprints and calculations, and the boys find themselves in a lot of trouble. Will their project go up in smoke? This ebook features an illustrated biography of Jean Craighead George, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
