Rocket, the star of Tad Hills's New York Times-bestselling picture books, returns in a brand-new, original board book to celebrate Christmas with his friends!
It's Christmas Eve, and Rocket is excited! He has made a book for Santa called Rocket Waits Up for Santa, and he's looking forward to giving it to him. Rocket's friends, Bella and Owl, have gifts for Santa too. They put all of their presents under a pine tree and wait and wait under the stars.
Soon the friends get very sleepy. They decide that it's okay to take a quick nap, so they all fall asleep. The next morning they see that their gifts are gone, but in their place is a notebook and pencils for Rocket, a wooly hat for Owl, and a red velvet bag for Bella. On the first page of Rocket's notebook there is a note from Santa, telling Rocket how much he loves the book that Rocket made for him. Merry Christmas, Rocket!
