Join Rocket Red’s journey in this funny, punny, action-packed tale of determination, friendship, teamwork, and the power of music.

Rocket Red is a little guitar-playing, singing ant who dreams of becoming a big rock star. His mom, the queen ant, disapproves! She believes his job is to work and feed the ant colony. The only one who seems to believe in him is his pal, Beebop Bea.

One day, delayed by practicing with his Lucky Bug Band, Red finds himself all alone and in a dreadful jam. Can his music somehow save him?

In addition to the fun story, children are delighted to search for Beebop Bea hiding in the pages and to count the red ants throughout the book—from the writers of the celebrated War at the Ice Cream Store and creators of Biff Bam Booza, the interactive community of trusted entertainment for kids.

My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A wonderful book about following your dreams! Anthony Ant wanted to make music for people. However, the Queen Bee had a different job for him, carrying food to the colony. One day, however, Anthony’s dreams come true. He’s making music for all the people at the picnic, along with his band. A great story teaching kids to never stop dreaming, persistence and hard work will make a difference. I loved how there was a page with cool facts about ants in the back – most of which I didn’t know! I love learning right along with my son. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous. You’ll definitely want to Rock Out with Rocket Red!
