Red Rover is a gorgeously illustrated tale that explores the vast, inhospitable landscape of Mars and the adventures of the little rover that calls the planet its home.

Mars has a visitor.

It likes to roam...

observe...

measure...

and collect.

It explores the red landscape--
crossing plains, climbing hills,
and tracing the bottoms of
craters--in search of water
and life.

It is not the first to visit Mars.

It will not be the last.

But it might be...
the most curious.
