    這是松鼠小石,他熱愛火箭和飛船,他的夢想就是造一艘火箭,飛到火星,带上一些動物在那裡建造一個城市!你可能會覺得那不可能,但讀完這本書,也許你會改主意!

    Meet Rocky the squirrel. He loves rockets. He dreams of making a rocket that can reach Mars and bringing a group of animals to start a city there! t like my servant!
    有一些淘氣包聽說他要造火箭去火星,心裡很嫉妒,嘴上卻嘲笑他,說:「小石,你不可能做到的!你太異想天開了!」

    But the problem was that bullies laughed at Rocky when they heard about his dreams of building a rocket. They snickered and taunted him, “HAHA! Rocky, you can’t do it! YOU CAN NEVER DO IT!” But in reality, they were actually jealous of him, his dream, and his passion.
    一年一年地過去了,小石高中畢業了!他不打算去上大學,而是開始準備造他的火箭!

    Year after year, Rocky studied very hard at school desperate to make the rocket of his dreams. Finally, he graduated from high school! He decided to skip university and start building his rocket!
    小石埋頭苦幹,整副心思都放在火箭上。一開始遇到各種各樣的困難,小石差一點想放棄,但他的父母一直鼓勵他堅持下去,不過小石還是擔心他的計劃沒法成功。

    Rocky worked hard making the rocket. At some points, he felt like he couldn’t make it, but his parents encouraged him to keep going, Even so, he still doubted that his rocket could make it.
    終於,火箭完工了,小石請來了另一隻松鼠幫他測試。他計劃讓小松鼠乘坐他的火箭繞著地球飛行一圈。不過小石很緊張,他擔心測試可能會失敗。

    Finally, the rocket was finished. Rocky asked another young squirrel to help test out on his newly finished rocket. They would fly a circle around the world. Rocky was nervous because he didn’t think that the test would work.
    小石看著自己的火箭慢慢上天。雖然小石很擔心,但火箭還是成功的發射到了天上。小石回到家後準備一杯茶打。而算看一會兒電視,因為他信步平安時會看電視。

    Rocky watched his rocket as it took off into the air. He returned home, feeling worried. He decided to watch a bit of TV, which was what he always did when he got stressed. He made himself a cup of tea and settled on the couch.
    突然電話響了,小石接電話。「請問你是小石嗎?」一位女管理員說著。「小石,有個壞消息要告訴你。我們⋯你的火箭⋯消失了,沒有成功地在火星降落⋯」小石倒吸了一口涼氣,摔落在沙發上,又生氣又傷心。

    Suddenly, the phone rang. Rocky picked up the receiver. “Hello, is this Rocky? I have bad news for you,” a lady squirrel’s voice boomed into the receiver. “We…we...we...your rocket disappeared. I’m sorry.” Rocky gasped and slumped onto the sofa, disappointed and despaired.
    小石看著晚上的星星很美⋯⋯等等,它們好像在形成一個句子!小石再仔細的看了看,發現句子是:“你能做到如果你相信”。

    小石又接了電話,「喂爸媽?我會在來,該一個新的火箭。」


    Through tears, Rocky looked out of the window. The stars shone brightly that night… wait, they were forming into a sentence! Rocky looked closer and read, “You can if you believe…”

    He picked up the phone. “Hello? Mom? Dad? I’m trying again... to build a new rocket!”
    小石 不想再失敗,所以他花了更多時間思考上次失敗的原因,並去改造新火箭的細節。有些時候,他差一點想放棄,但他像爸媽一樣,一直鼓勵自己。

    Rocky worked hard on his new spaceship. At times, he wanted to give up, but he did not. He worked harder than he had ever done before and his parents continued to support and encourage him. Rocky believed that if he put his heart into it, he could accomplish anything.
    小石的新火箭終於造好了,小石爬進火箭,往窗外看了一下。他的父母眼淚就像瀑布一樣的流了下去,但他們知道這是他心懷已久的夢想。小石希望他會成功。小石再回頭一看然後火箭出發了。

    Finally, Rocky finished building the rocket. He climbed into the rocket, waving to the crowd. His parents waved to him, trying to hide their sadness, for their son was leaving them. Rocky took one last look around, then the rocket took off.
    幾年後在十月的一個晚上晚上,小石的父母坐在沙發上,看電視。突然,門鈴響了。小石的爸爸站了起來,走向大門。他發現門前有一個小包裹,上面寫著 “火星速遞”四個字。

    A few years later on an October evening, Rocky’s parents sat on a couch watching TV when the doorbell sounded. Rocky’s dad strolled to the door. A cardboard package lay on the floor that read:
    Mars Express
    小石的爸爸撕開了包裹,裡面有一個紅色的信封。他把信封打開,看到信的內容,眼淚在他的眼眶裏打轉。小石的爸爸又蹦又跳,把信揮來揮去。

    我到了火星。


    Rocky’s dad ripped open the package. There was a red envelope inside. He tore open the envelope and there laid letter. There were tears of relief rolling down his cheek as he read the letter:

    I have reached the star.

    不要忘記,遇到難題時,不要放棄,相信你自己,去實現你的夢想。如果你沒有成功,不要難過,堅持下去,你的夢想肯定會實現的!

    When you‘re facing problems, don’t forget: Try not to give up and follow your dreams. Don’t be sad if your experiment doesn’t work, and soon, you will reach the star, just like Rocky did. And always remember, you can if you believe.
