"Perfect for fans of Where the Wild Things Are , as it too features a voyage by a kid who doesn't play by the rules. A great storytime choice for young book lovers and adventurers." -- School Library Journal

"My name is Rufus Leroy Williams III. And I am ready to blast off."

Rufus the Pig has already sailed the seven seas on a pirate ship. Now he dreams of the Moon, the stars, and Mars! So he bids his mateys goodbye and reports for duty at the space center. But Commander Luna tells him: "No pigs in space!" Why? Because pigs pester the pilot, do loop-the-loops in the cabin, and always want to push buttons. Then Luna learns that she needs someone to read a book live from the Red Planet--or the mission is scrubbed. Will Rufus finally blast off? This third tale about the adventurous pig is sci-fi fantastic!
