Dapo Adeola

Look Up!
  • Look Up!

  • Meet hilarious, science-mad chatterbox, Rocket - she's going to be the greatest astronaut, star-catcher, space-traveller that has ever lived!

    But... can she convince her big brother to stop looking down at his phone and start LOOKING UP at the stars?

    Bursting with energy and passion about science and space, this heart-warming, inspirational picture book will have readers turning off their screens and switching on to the outside world.

    "Outstanding - a breath of fresh air, just like Rocket herself" - Kirkus Reviews
    "Energetic and with a wry, sweet take on family dynamics, it will alert readers to the mysteries of the night skies" - The Guardian
