Getting Ready for the Moon Landing Celebrations

It is almost 50 years since the moon landings. In the weeks leading up to it, I will be having my own little celebration, tidying up Ricky Rocket, my early reader series set in the year 3,000.

Ricky and his family encounter most of the problems that kids and families do today, but in a spacey, hi-tech way! Ricky is a feisty kid who is not afraid to try new things and take control.

Above is my latest video, a read-along-with-Shoo storytelling of the the day Ricky learned to fly without stabilisers. Dad sort of helps, but mostly gets in the way! It’s a story every child who ever learned to ride a bike will empathise with.

The story is available in my three book bind up – Ricky Rocket Rocks the Planet – signed copies with free Ricky Rocket poster are available in my own bookstore.

I’m planning to make Apollo drawing videos over the next few weeks. If there is something you would like me to draw to help your school or homeschool or homework project, let me know and I’ll give you a shout out on the video!

Sweet Disaster! – A Ricky Rocket Story


A fast and funny story. Ricky Rocket is the only human boy on the planet of Hammerhead in the year 3,000.

Ricky has made shortbread astronauts from Granny Earth’s best recipe book. The new alien kids from next door gobble them up, but the cookies have a strange effect on their alien bodies? Why have they started floating?
