Synopsis

Zoom into space on an exciting adventure in this toddler-friendly board book from the award-winning, bestselling creator of How to Catch a Star, and Lost and Found.

One day a boy finds an aeroplane in his cupboard.

Up, up and away he flies, past clouds and stars until suddenly, phut, phut phut, the plane runs out of petrol and the boy crash lands on the moon.

Just as he is beginning to get cold and lonely, a Martian appears from the darkness - could this be the start of an unlikely friendship?

And will the boy ever manage to get home again?
