★★★ Contains 22 brand-new, never-before-seen illustrations made especially for this 100th Anniversary Edition!!
One of the true classics of American literature, Peter Newell's "The Rocket Book," has stirred the imagination of young and old alike for over four generations. Originally published in 1912 by Harper & Brothers, New York, it was the first children's book of its kind, a book about a rocket's incredible journey, floor by floor, through a 21-floor New York apartment. This lavishly produced facsimile of the rare first edition of the Rocket Book by JANES Works Company contains all 22 of Peter Newell's original watercolors and the colorful pictorial binding that make the 100th Anniversary Edition of The Rocket Book so special and enduring.
What makes the Special publication of the 100th Anniversary Edition of the Rocket Book so *SPECIAL* is that it includes 22 brand-new, never-before-seen illustrations, 44 in all. Not only do you get Peter Newell's original 22 watercolors, but you will also get 22 additional illustrations created just for this edition that depict each floor just BEFORE the rocket comes screaming through.

I have two boys and they can't get enough of it. I had this book growing up, but they've added new pictures which make this the best version yet. It looks great on the iPad 2. Very happy I found it here.
