Blast Off by Malachy Doyle and Gill McLean

The Final Countdown!
Review by The Mole

When the toys find a spaceship then it becomes necessary to find a way to choose who will be the astronaut and so they set out to find which of them has all the skills required.

Each page is not only brightly and colourfully illustrated but also carries a countdown to the final launch. The selection  is done is a sensible way and at each point each toy that drops from the selection does so without disagreement.

The back of the book contains teachers and parents notes to help get as much as possible from the book.

It can, in contrast, just be read as a fun story - and that gets my vote!  A lovely book and well executed!
