Blurb; The action-packed fifth installment in the infectiously sweet illustrated middle grade series starring a Muslim boy with a huge imagination.
Omar and his friends are blasting off on another adventure–this time at a rocket-building competition. All of his family’s Science Sundays prepared Omar to lead his friends on their quest to build the best rocket in their school, sending them to the nationals. But when their rocket is sabotaged, Omar and his friends have to use their expertise in science and mysteries to find the culprit.
This fifth book in the charming, warmhearted, and hilarious series about a boy growing up in a close-knit Muslim family, packed with eye-popping artwork by Kyan Cheng, is explosively fun!
My Review; Meet main character Omar and his friends who decide they want to take part in a rocket building competition with the best prize ever for the winners. They refuse to be beaten. Alas there is bullying along the way and a few tricks and cheating but can they do it? A brilliant read for younger children. Beautifully illustrated throughout. A well deserved four stars.
