The Lovereading4Kids comment

A sophisticated story with an important message lies at the heart of this deliciously entertaining book. The animals on Mr Tanner’s farm are in revolt against their farmer’s disgusting behaviour; he pollutes the water, cuts down the trees, and makes the animals live in a crumbling barn. Luckily, they come up with what seems like a very clever plan…When things go wrong, all looks hopeless until Mr Tanner himself does a very stupid thing. Soon he is up, up and away and the animals can live happily ever after!

Synopsis

We Have Lift-off! by Sean Taylor

Mr Tanner the farmer pollutes his farm and mistreats his animals, leading the animals to stage a rebellion. They build an intergalactic space rocket to take them up into the clean, clear skies, far away from PEOPLE. First a chicken, then a clever rabbit, and lastly a calm sheep, are chosen for test flights. But each time something goes wrong and the rocket returns to Earth. The animals don't know what to do. But then Farmer Tanner discovers the rocket...Determined to take it for himself, he zooms off into space, and is never seen again. The message is clear - look after each other and the planet, or it will be your turn next in the rocket...!

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
