Asha and Baz Meet Mary Sherman Morgan

Asha and Baz



Caroline Fernandez

Dharmali Patel

Asha and Baz have a paper rocket to launch! Whoever builds the rocket that  travels the farthest will get to meet astronaut Chris Hadfield. The only problem  is Asha and Baz don’t know how to power their rocket.


Stuck and unsure, the kids brainstorm by drawing a rocket in the sand using  a stick. But this is a very unusual stick. In fact, it’s a magic stick! And it transports  them back in time to meet a person who might be able to help them with their  rocket problem: scientist Mary Sherman Morgan.
