Hedgie Blasts Off!

by Jan Brett Illustrated by Jan Brett
From the author of Honey...Honey...Lion! comes the story of Hedgie, who wants more than anything to be an astronaut and travel into space. He gets his chance the day Big Sparkler, the geyser, starts to sputter and fade, disappointing all the alien tourists. As he launches into space and fixes the geyser problem in a most unusual way, Hedgie returns home a hero.
