Description - Martin Bridge: Ready for Takeoff! by ,Jessica,Scott Kerrin

Meet Martin Bridge --- a boy whose well-meant plans sometimes go awry. In three illustrated stories, Martin encounters two bus drivers with very different ways of relating, makes a tough decision about a friend's pet and takes on an extremely competitive model rocket project that almost costs him a friendship. The daily rhythms, struggles and triumphs of childhood --- at home, at school and with friends --- are evoked with warmth, understanding, honesty and humor.
