Do you ever look up at the moon at night and see the face of the "man" in the moon? Does he ever look sad to you? Maybe like a sad clown? Well, that's what happens when our hero looks up at the moon. That man looks like a sad clown and our hero has decided to do something about it. He is going up to that moon to plant sunflowers. What could be happier than sunflowers?
Well right about now you might be asking yourself how does a boy bicycle to the moon to plant sunflowers? You probably think he couldn't carry those sunflowers all by himself... or something like that, right? Aha. You are in great luck.
You have in your hands right now at this very moment the answers to all of your questions...even the ones about how to handle the media when you get home from the moon and you've become a celebrity.
This is a step by step instruction manual ---- 24 valuable steps --- to guide you through to the moon and home to the microphone. They haven't forgotten anything from the 21 foot flag pole to the inner tubes for the catapault, the collection of garden hoses, your NASA spacesuit and most of all, getting your mom to say yes.
A glorious, imaginative romp that makes a great read aloud... captures the souls of some 3rd grade boys who can't wait to get their hands on the book... and will inspire many future sunflower farmers.
