A basset hound is far superior to a robot when it comes to space exploration and Rover the dog explains why in his application to be NASA’s next lunar rover. In this 358-word picture book, the text lays out the special training and unique skills that Rover hopes to put to use on the Moon, while the illustrations take the reader on a journey through Rover’s past as his human grows up and goes off to work for NASA herself. This book strikes the perfect balance between humorous and heartfelt. It is aimed at children ages 3 to 6. This book would be a perfect 2024 release, to coincide with the excitement surrounding the manned moon missions that are scheduled for launch in late 2024.
