When your dad’s an inventor trifling with his latest project, a rocket, can land you in real trouble, as Jill and her sisters discover. Especially when it lands you in Fairy Tale Land. There are witches, wolves and trolls to overcome. When Janet comes face to face with a spider Jill has to calm her down. When they encounter the Red Queen the chase to find the Knave of Hearts begins. As they journey onwards to see the Giantess they must think of a gift to take her on behalf of their father, after all, she did save his life when he was a boy! Will the sisters be able to survive by using their wits, creativity and teamwork?

Ruth loves to dance, act and tell stories. She was a teacher of English, Dance and Drama before coming to London to work for the Unicorn Theatre for children. Here she staged many children’s community productions all over Westminster, including in the Cathedral. Ruth has travelled extensively taking groups of children to perform in World Theatre festivals where she has run workshops and told many stories. She continues to enjoy teaching through drama, story and dance. She has now found time to write her first book and hopes it will be the first of many.

    Move over "Land of Stories" and make room for a new kid on the block. Young readers will delight in this new adventure. "Jill's Rocket Adventure" has a bit of everything—recognizable characters, heart-stopping adventures, sibling rivalry and a determination to correct old wrongs. Journey with Jill and her sisters to Fairy Tale Land, meet the Gingerbread Man, the Hare and the Tortoise, Little Miss Muffet's spider, the Three Little Pigs and so many more as the sisters set out to apologize to a Giantess. I can't wait for the return trip! Jasper, their stowaway cat, has to be rescued! I hope this will be the first of many great children's books from author and storyteller, Ruth Burgess.
