Climb aboard the spaceship bus for a fantastic field trip adventure to the Moon! Once their bright yellow ship lands, students debark and set out with their teacher to explore. They jump over trenches and see craters and mountains on the Moon’s surface and even Earth in the faraway distance. But when one student takes a break to draw some pictures and falls asleep, they wake up to discover that the rest of the class and the spaceship are gone. How the student passes the time waiting to be rescued makes for a funny and unexpected adventure that will enchant children all over the galaxy. With rich atmospheric art, this wordless picture book invites children to imagine themselves in the story — a story full of surprises, including some friendly space creatures. A perfect complement to discussions and lessons on the Moon landing. For ages 4 to 8.
