Fly to the moon and back in this star-spangled adventure and contact your own alien with an intergalactic walkie-talkie!
One day a boy finds an aeroplane in his cupboard. Up, up, up and away he flies, high into the sky. He whizzes past clouds and stars until suddenly, phut, phut phut, the plane runs out of petrol…
Miles from earth, 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?
Make extraterrestrial contact with an intergalactic walkie-talkie and a special miniature hardback edition of ‘The Way Back Home’.
