“Elsie was a little girl, with dreams about the Moon.
She built herself a rocket ship one Sunday afternoon.
On went her silver overalls and goggles on her face,
she counted down from ten to one then blasted into space”

Join Elsie on her adventure into space and discover what surprise she has in store!

This delightful children’s picture book has catchy rhyming verses and beautiful illustrations that make it a fun and engaging read for both adults and children.

Suitable for ages 2-6

This book was lovingly created from scratch by mum of 2, Helen Bacon.

"Helen Bacon helps to send a clear message to my children that being a girl is more than baby dolls and glitter sparkles.....Elsie’s Rocket is a charming experience that I wholeheartedly recommend" - The Busy Papa

"I fell in love with the illustrations, they almost look as though they are in a dream state, you get the sense that what is pictured is actually images that Elsie is conjuring up in her mind." - Mama Mummy Mum

"These illustrations really encapsulate the vivid imagination of children. You can picture in your head how a child would visualize the journey into space and the adventures they would have.....The story is simple and quick to read and has a nice flow to it which keeps the kids entertained. The illustration’s fit perfectly with the rhymes and really help to bring the story to life."- My Bedfordshire
