AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Based on Matt Zurbo and Dean Gorissen's picture book, I Got A Rocket! follows the adventures of a slightly lonely boy named Vinnie Q, whose inventor father presents him with an anthropomorphised rocket, Rocket. Though the appearance of Rocket does increase Vinnie's popularity, he still needs to deal with his timidity around Maya Kovsky (on whom he has a crush), the misbehaviour of the trio of bullies known as the Duckies, and the over-enthusiasm of a loyal best friend who is, after all, not human.
