Product Overview

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! Millions of miles from Earth, the plane begins to sputter and quake, its fuel tank on empty. 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. Martian, Earthling?it''s all the same when you?re in need of a friend.

From the Publisher
Editors Note Finding an airplane in his closet, a young boy takes to the sky and heads straight for space to explore the world above and beyond, but when the plane runs out of gas and he comes crashing onto the moon, the young boy is thrilled to be befriended by a Martian who is in the exact same predicament. 50,000 first printing.
Annotation Upon finding an airplane in his closet, a little boy decides its high-time to head to outer space. Be-goggled and limbered up, he sets off only to crash on the moon. There, he makes friends with a small, green Martian, and together they work out a rescue plan. This whimsical and imaginative story is accompanied by delicately funky watercolor and collage illustrations. THE INCREDIBLE BOOK EATING BOY is by the same author.
