The Way Back Home
When a boy discovers a single-propeller airplane in his closet, he does what any young adventurer would do: He flies it into outer space! After narrowly avoiding disaster, the boy executes a daring landing on the moon . . . but there’s no telling what kind of slimy, slithering, tentacled, fangtoothed monsters lurk in the darkness! (Plus, it’s dark and lonely out there.) Coincidentally, engine trouble has stranded a young Martian on the other side of the moon, and he’s just as frightened and alone. Oliver Jeffers writes and illustrates this charming story about friendship— something we all need, whether Martian or Earthling.
