Pee Wee Scouts: Planet Pee Wee is a part of the Pee Wee Scouts collection.

Everyone in the Pee Wee Scouts wants to win a trip to Camp Blast Off, the super-cool summer camp where kids learn what it's like to be an astronaut.  But there's only room for one scout from each troop in the country.  So the Pee Wee Scouts set out to make the best project about the planets and the solar system: Roger is building model meteors and stars with light bulbs, Rachel is stirring up a recipe for freeze-dried peanut butter.  Find out what Molly and Mary Beth are working on--maybe the most exciting project of all!

An Excerpt fromPee Wee Scouts: Planet Pee Wee

"Well, our project will have to be really, really good," said Mary Beth.

Molly noticed Mary Beth had said "our project." She asked, "Are we doing one together?"

"Of course," said Mary Beth.  "We're best friends.  And it will take both of us to come up with something to beat Roger."

"What about Jody and Kevin and Rachel?" said Molly.  "They always have really good projects."

"Well, ours is going to have to be better," said Mary Beth, sighing.  "We're going to have to come up with something really great."

The girls thought some more.

"I know what the best thing of all would be," said Molly.  "It would be to build a real rocket and really go to the moon.  Boy, would Roger and Mrs.  Peters ever be surprised."

"How could we do that?" asked Mary Beth.

"I don't know, but I know no one else could beat us.  We'd be sure to win the contest."

Just saying the words made Molly quiver with excitement.  Could they build their own rocket? If they worked really hard, could they go to the moon?
