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 Thoughts on Rocket Red

Rocket Red was a wonderfully lyrical story – something I am coming to expect with Cheryl DaVeiga’s style of writing.  

This book was probably my favorite in the series so far and I really enjoyed the puns and funny humor throughout the story. It was something that made everyone smile and helped them want to reread (and sing) this book over and over. I know we will be rereading it for a long time to come.  

Another thing I love about this book is how Cheryl DaVeiga utilizes song to help the story be more interactive. They are catchy and make you want to sing and dance 😊 at least that’s what my littles say.  

I definitely think this is a great investment of your time to read! 5 Stars.  

*I Volunteered to read this book in return for my honest feedback.
