( )

Blast off for summer adventure! These books will take you from a few feet off the ground to far beyond the galaxy (even this universe). Also, rocket ship trees, did we mention the rocket ship trees?

Who needs destinations? This summer, we're focusing on the journey. All these books — some old, some new — will transport you: by train, plane, car, bike, boat, foot, city transit, horse, balloon, rocket ship, time machine and even the odd giant peach. Bon voyage! (Taxes and fees not included).
