Red Rover is a gorgeously illustrated tale that explores the vast, inhospitable landscape of Mars and the adventures of the little rover that calls the planet its home.

Mars has a visitor.

It likes to roam...



and collect.

It explores the red landscape—
crossing plains, climbing hills,
and tracing the bottoms of
craters—in search of water
and life.

It is not the first to visit Mars.

It will not be the last.

But it might be...
the most curious.

Join Curiosity on its journey across the red planet in this innovative and dynamic nonfiction picture book by Richard Ho, illustrated by Sibert Honor winner Katherine Roy.

This title has Common Core connections.
