THE ROCKET MAN is a five day adventure designed to last fifteen minutes each day. Each chapter ends at an exciting point so students want to return the next day to hear how yesterday's situation is resolved.
Everything needed to present the story is in one book with a complete script and large black and white line drawings suitable for coloring by the story teller.
Just as the Conley family is making the big move to Shadow River Inn to turn it into a Bed and Breakfast, they receive a demanding letter from Oliver Chatsworth's family announcing their impending visit. So much work, so little time! It doesn't help that Oliver's daughter-in-law and grandson are of the "snooty" persuasion.
Oliver himself turns out to be a kind, gentle old man who takes an immediate liking to Chip and Clare. Chip discovers that the man is his long time hero, a pioneer space scientist.
Eventually, "Chatty" asks Chip and his disagreeable grandson to help with a secret government project. When evil Josiah Sprague shows up, the fun begins. Chatty needs to find an old picture before Josiah finds it.
What it has to do with the next NASA space launch and two famous astronauts is the centerpiece of the story. The kids end up in a leaky rowboat but in the end someone who has been lost a long time reappears and NASA is saved.
