The energetic and zany duo Shorty and Clem are back, and this time they learn all about working together! A fresh and dynamic friendship story featuring a spirited dinosaur and a cranky but loving bird. Clem can’t wait to assemble his brand-new rocket ship kit. If all goes right, he’ll blast it off! Vroom! “It looks like you need my help,” observes Shorty. “That’s okay, Shorty. I’ve got this,” says Clem. Even though Clem is sure he doesn’t need help, it turns out that he really does! From the creator of the award-winning app Scruffy Kitty, Michael Slack, Shorty & Clean Blast Off! is perfect for fans of Jory John’s Goodnight Already, Chris Haughton’s books, and Mo Willems.
