Sascha Martin's Rocket-Ship

Child inventor Sascha Martin, dressed as a superhero, stands proudly with his Rocket-Ship.




Sascha Martins Rocket-Ship
was twice the teacher's height
He brought it in for News one day
(his mum had said all right)

He left it on the table with
a note that said "Don't touch!"
So someone pushed a button
and the rocket started such

A roaring, then went silent
then it gave a mighty boom!
And Sascha grabbed the rocket
as the rocket left the room ...

In book one of the  Sascha Martin kids book series, three aliens emerge from a wormhole in Sascha's secret lab.

It begins the moment Sascha
Martins Rocket-Ship departs
The adventure of a daytime
and a tale of many parts

As the rocket-ship with Sascha
at the tail-end holding tight
Rips a course above the schoolyard
with its engine burning bright


Sascha Martin's classmate Mary-Alice Cooper reacts to the boom of Sascha's rocket-ship launching.


From disaster in the tuck-shop
to the office block aflame
Children milling in the playground
during lessons, what a shame!

And the sound of teachers screaming
(to the children's dark delight)
As the rocket-ship conveys them
to a far, uncounted height


High in the air, Sascha Martin screams as he clings to the tail of his runaway rocket-ship.

And disappears. It was a rescue
bid that failed, it was bold
It's the very stuff of legend
and a legend often told

At Landfill Public School, where Sascha,
chuffed with all that he's achieved,
Brings a new invention every week
and chaos unrelieved

Enfin, Sascha Martins Rocket-Ship
the first book in the series
Is the perfect kind of book for kids
- a tale that never wearies

An investment that matures
as your children also do
And they find the hidden giggles
that have so appealed to you
