PreSchool-K. A boy's trip to the moon and home again is told in a simple rhyming text, "First, space suit,/then, space boot." Artwork rendered in alkyds on watercolor paper is painted in lush colors and fills the page. Pictures in a stylized manner reminiscent of '30s art illustrate the scenes, enriching the fantasy element of the story. Text is placed within illustrations, successfully leading the eye and complementing the narrative. "Lights winking./Panels blinking./Buttons and dials/Count the miles" are words that become part of the instrument panel, adding movement to the page as they are read. This title is suited for independent reading or as a read-aloud. Zoom! Zoom! Zoom! can be teamed with Jill Murphy's What Next, Baby Bear? (Dial, 1986) and Nina Crews's I'll Catch the Moon (Greenwillow, 1996) for a lunar storytime.?Susan M. Moore, Louisville Free Public Library, KY

With infectious excitement, a young child bounds through his door, into a rocket and off to the moon. The short, rhymed text, replete with exclamation points, pounds away like a rapid heartbeat--``Boosters blast!/Moving fast./Engines roaring./Rocket soaring''-- while the young traveler, resembling the Michelin Man in his huge, orange spacesuit, tumbles about in free fall, watches the earth rise from the lunar surface, then waves at the crowds celebrating his return before bounding back into his parents' arms, and to bed. Using hot, shimmeringly intense hues that shift from spread to spread, Yaccarino (If I Had a Robot, 1996, etc.) creates big, simple paintings so energetic they practically need to be held down; this is his most emphatic crowd pleaser since Eve Merriam's Bam Bam Bam (1995) (Picture book. 3-5) -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP.
