Book "What makes rockets soar?" made at the Mini Festival, 5 July 2007 (4 years)

Back to the top

Actually the story was supposed to be about a cat! He wanted to do a rocket question book. Just questions, no answers. The first picture is the cover, showing a rocket, in lots of detail including gunpowder as the fuel. The second says "Alexander", the next says "What Makes Rockets Soar?" (note the "w" for "what?") and after that it gets unclear.
