Come and meet local author Tony Kent at WHSmith Monks Cross on Saturday 20th April. Tony will be signing copies of his children's book Noah's Rocket
This is the story of Noah's Ark set in the world of today. A huge flood is coming. Noah is instructed to build a giant space rocket in his back garden big enough to carry two of every kind of living thing. Together with his family, Noah and the animals will blast off into orbit around the Earth until it is safe to return. However... As work on the rocket begins, the neighbours complain. Noah is arrested and to his alarm the rocket is dismantled. Noah realises he cannot build another giant rocket anywhere without the police finding out. How will Noah complete his mission?
