About the book

Illustrated by Linzie Hunter. Published by Knopf, an imprint of Penguin Random House.

Having a jetpack is fun — if you know what to do with one. If you had a jetpack, you could:

  • Teach your brother how to build one too.
  • Demonstrate its usefulness at Show and Share Time at school
  • Give your principal a ride home.
  • Fly south to visit your nana.
  • Visit the astronauts on the space station and help with anything that needed fixing.

​Join one inventive little rabbit as he and his brother put their new jetpack to good use!
